Paper and Thin Layer Chromatography
Viva Voce. No, most organic compounds obtained from natural sources and synthesised in laboratories are not pure. Various methods are used for the purification of organic compounds that are based on the nature of the compound and the impurity present in it. Among the various separation techniques, chromatography is one of the most important separation technique extensively used to separate mixtures into their components and the purification of the compounds. The word chromatography originated from two greek words 'chroma' meaning 'colour' and 'graphine' meaning 'to write'.
What are the advantages of Thin Layer Chromatography over Paper Chromatography?
As TLC is less time consuming, low cost, and can be performed with less complicated technique it has a wide application in pharmaceutical analysis. If performed precisely 32 amino acids can be separated by TLC. Also it has a wide application in identifying impurities in a compound. TLC can be used to monitor the progress of a reaction, identify compounds present in a given substance. Many standard methods in industrial chemistry, environmental toxicology, food chemistry, water, inorganic and pesticide analysis, dye purity, cosmetics, plant materials, and herbal analysis rely upon TLC as the preferred approach. Chromatography was discovered by M.
This book discusses the practical approach in the application of paper and thin layer chromatography techniques in the biological sciences. Organized into 18 chapters, this edition begins with an overview of the clinical aspects related to the detection of those metabolic diseases that can result in serious illness presenting in infancy and early childhood. This text then discusses the three major types of screening for inherited metabolic disorders in which paper or thin-layer chromatography are being used, including screening the healthy newborn population, screening the sick hospitalized child, and screening mentally retarded patients. Other chapters consider the procedures for thin layer chromatography. This book discusses as well the complexity of amino acid mixtures present in natural products. The final chapter deals with the detection of synthetic basic drugs. Editors and Authors Preface 1.

As more potent drugs are used in ever decreasing dosage, studies of drug metabolism require analytical and separatory methods of increasing sensitivity. This demand has led to the development of powerful new techniques such as gas chromatography coupled to mass spectrometry. It has also generated a formidable outpouring of papers on modifications of the more classical techniques, which are the subject of this chapter, i. For the most part these techniques permit drug metabolism to be studied quite effectively with relatively simple and inexpensive apparatus. Paper and thin layer chromatography have received particular emphasis since very small amounts of material can be examined, an important consideration in studies with modern, highly potent drugs.

Chromatography is a useful technique to precisely separate, analyze, and purify a wide range of samples, including food, pharmaceuticals, pesticides, air and water samples, and tissue extracts.
In many experiments, it is important to be able to separate a mixture into its chemical components in order to isolate one compound or to assess the purity of the mixture. Thin layer chromatography TLC is one of the easiest and most versatile methods of doing this because of its low cost, simplicity, quick development time, high sensitivity, and good reproducibility. TLC is used by many industries and fields of research, including pharmaceutical production, clinical analysis, industrial chemistry, environmental toxicology, food chemistry, water, inorganic, and pesticide analysis, dye purity, cosmetics, plant materials, and herbal analysis. In its simplest form, glass plates are coated with a uniform layer of silica gel SiO2. The dissolved sample is placed on the plate, and the plate is inserted into a screw-top jar containing the developing solvent and a piece of filter paper.
