High-performance liquid chromatography (HPLC is formerly referred to as high-pressure liquid chromatography), is a technique in analytical chemistry used to separate, identify, and quantify each component in a mixture. HPLC is used in many different ways. Manufacturers use it during the production process of pharmaceutical and biological products. It can be used for research when separating the components of a complex biological sample or of similar chemicals from each other. It can also be useful in medical and legal purposes.
What is Chromatography
Chromatography can be described as a mass transfer process involving adsorption. HPLC is differentiated from traditional (low pressure) Liquid Chromatography because HPLC relies on pumps and pressurization of liquids, whereas ordinary Liquid Chromatography relies on the force of gravity to pass liquids.
