Applications of Gas Chromatography | 5 Major Uses

applications of gas chromatography

Gas chromatography is one of the widely used analytical tools. The applications of gas chromatography include Qualitative analysis Testing the purity of compounds To trace impurities Quantitative analysis Determination of a mixture of drugs Isolation and identification of metabolites Identification of compound mixtures. Qualitative analysis: Here the compounds in a given sample are identified. Qualitative […]

Fluorimetry | Principle, Instrumentation and Applications

Fluorescence spectroscopy

Fluorimetry is a type of spectroscopy which measures the emitted radiation from a substance. This radiation is one which is emitted by the substance when the electrons transit from excited state to ground state. The principle of fluorescence spectroscopy: In UV-Visible spectroscopy, the excitation wavelength is measured. But, here the emission wavelength is measured. When […]

Test for proteins | Chemical Methods of Identification in Labs

Test for proteins

Proteins are the essential biomolecules present in the living organisms. They give structural support and rigidity to the organisms. There are many proteins like albumin, globulin, casein, gelatin, peptone etc. The tests for proteins include Coagulation test Biuret test Neumann’s test Half saturation test Aldehyde test Millon’s test Ninhydrin test Xanthohydrin test Arginine test Isoelectric […]

Normal Phase Chromatography| Principle and Applications

Normal phase chromatography is one where in the stationary phase is polar in nature and the mobile phase is non-polar in nature. Chromatography is a separation process which employs two phases i.e. stationary phase and a mobile phase. The stationary phase is water soluble and polar in nature. While the mobile phase is water insoluble […]

HPLC Chromatography | Its Principle and Working Methodology

HPLC analysis is one of the types of chromatography used to isolate and analyze mixtures. HPLC in full form is “High-pressure liquid chromatography.” Unlike column chromatography, here high pressure is employed in the process. Hence the name. But also due to its efficiency in the analysis of compounds, it is regarded as High-performance liquid chromatography. […]

Ion Exchange chromatography | Principle, Method & Applications

Ion exchange chromatography is an interesting type of column chromatography. As you know, the Chromatography is a process of the separation of molecules from a mixture. This separation is done based on the differences in the adsorption coefficient or partition coefficient of the sample with the stationary phase. Whereas in ion exchange chromatography segregation of […]
