Chromatography is an analytical technique used for separation of components of a mixture.
In the first decade of the 20th century, this technique was primarily used for separation of plant pigments such as “Chlorophyll”.
Chromatography is a misnomer since it is no longer limited to the separation of coloured substance.
Chromatography involves distribution of a solute between two immiscible phases which are
- Stationery Phase
- Mobile Phase.
