What happens when we inject a sample into the mobile-phase stream? Many LC practitioners are surprised to learn just how serious the effect of the injected sample solvent can be.

Here, we focus on selectivity: its definition, its importance for generating separations and resolution; and its role in column polarity.

We assess the state of the field, first looking back at developments presented at conferences this year, reader questions, and the passing of a pioneer in solid-phase extraction. Then, we look to the future of sample preparation.

Scientists executing a method transfer often do not have access to the originating system. Thus, alternative approaches to matching chromatographic results must be considered.

The number of theoretical plates forms the basis of chromatographic theory, and is a key parameter used in all modes of chromatography for measuring column efficiency. Fortunately, it’s easy to measure.
