Liquid Partition Chromatography—Mechanism and Materials

For the purpose of this book we will define partition processes in a very practical way. Partition of an organic solute occurs between a liquid mobile phase and an organic liquid absorbed in, or chemically bonded onto, a porous support. We will thus avoid complications which arise in trying to classify systems involving, for example water-modified adsorbents; are they partition or adsorption? For our purposes they are liquid-solid adsorption chromatographic processes.
