Column Chromatography

Column Chromatography Definition:

The definition of column chromatography is a technique by which compounds are separated from each other based on a difference in the way they interact with the medium (the adsorbent) through which they are passed.

Column Chromatography Explained:

Column chromatography is a good way to separate enantiomers from one another. Based on the medium being used, and in effect the speed at which compounds travel, researchers can distinguish between properties of the respective compounds.
