The global economy is currently going through something it has not experienced in nearly a decade. The major geographic segments are performing well with overall production increasing. This is typically a strong indicator that the demand for chromatography products in the chemical and petrochemicals industry will also perform well.
A look at recent advances in SPME, such as increasing the sorbent surface area available for extraction, accommodating direct analysis by mass spectrometry, and sorbent overcoating to resist fouling by sugars and lipids
Because not all laboratories have UHPLC systems, reverse scaling of methods from UHPLC to HPLC is often needed, particularly in the pharmaceutical industry. The use of superficially porous particles can facilitate this process.
This article, the first in a series on chromatography fundamentals, discusses the cornerstone of all chromatographic techniques-the distribution or coefficient-and its influence on liquid chromatographic separations.
