CHROMATOGRAPHY Definition: The term chromatography (In Greek, Kromatous-Colour and Graphos-Written) meaning colour writing. It is the method in which the components of a mixture are separated on an adsorbent. IUPAC DEFINITION: It is a method used primarily for the separation of the components of a sample, in which the components are distributed between two phases, one of which is stationary while the other moves. The stationary phase may be solid or a liquid supported on a solid or a gel, and may be packed in a column, spread as a layer or distributed as a film. The mobile phase may be gaseous or liquid.


CLASSIFICATION Partition Chromatography: This involves liquid or gas as a mobile phase and another liquid or solid as a stationary phase. Adsorption Chromatography: This involves liquid or gas as mobile phase and adsorbent solid as stationary phase.

PAPER CHROMATOGRAPHY PRINCIPLE: The principle involved in separation by paper chromatography is largely by partition coefficient phenomenon. Separation of components depends on both their solubility in the mobile phase and their differential affinity to the mobile phase and stationary phase.


OPERATION TECHNIQUE Choice of filter paper: Whatman filter papers are used as chromatography paper. In general this paper contains 98-99% of a-cellulose. There are various grade and types of paper available for separation of a sample. Factors That governs the choice of paper: Nature of Sample and solvents used. Based on Quantitative or Qualitative analysis. Based on thickness of the paper.


APPLICATION OF SAMPLE: The sample mixture to be separated is applied as a small spot on the origin line. The spot is dried on the filter paper and is placed in developing chamber. Micropipette or glass capillary is used for sample application.


PREPARATION OF PAPER: Cut the paper into desired shape and size depending upon work to be carried out. The starting line is marked on the paper with an ordinary pencil 5cm from the bottom edge. On the staring line marks are made 2cm apart from each other.


SOLVENTS: A number of solvents can be used in the paper chromatography. The solvent selection depends upon nature of substance to be separated. Some Eg of solvents, Ethyl alcohol n-Butanol these solvents are used in N-Hexane water different ratio with different Benzene methanol mixture… Toluene chloroform

Materials List : 

Materials List 6 beakers or jars 6 covers or lids Distilled H2O Isopropanol Graduated cylinder 6 strips of filter paper Different colors of Sharpie pens Pencil Ruler Scissors Tape

Preparing the Isopropanol Solutions : 

Preparing the Isopropanol Solutions Prepare 15 ml of the following isopropanol solutions in appropriately labeled beakers: - 0%, 5%, 10%, 20%, 50%, and 100%


CHROMATOGRAPHIC CHAMBER: The chromatographic chamber are made up of many materials like glass, plastic or stainless steel. Glass tanks are preferred most. They are available in various dimensional size depending upon paper length and development type. The chamber atmosphere should be saturated with solvent vapour.

Developing the Chromatograms : 

Developing the Chromatograms Place the strips in the beakers Make sure the solution does not come above your start line Keep the beakers covered Let strips develop until the ascending solution front is about 2 cm from the top of the strip Remove the strips and let them dry

Developing the Chromatograms

Slide 16: 

DRYING OF CHROMATOGRAM: The chromatogram is dried after its development. They are dried by cold or hot air depending on volatility of solvents. A simple hair dryer is a convenient device to dry chromatograms. LOCATION OF SPOT: If the substance are coloured they are visually detected easily. But for colourless substance. Physical and chemical methods are used to detect the spot. Physical method: In this method observation are done under UV light, detection of fluorescence and radioisotope measurements. Chemical method: In this method chemical reagent is used to develop the colour. >Amino Acids-Ninhydrin Reagent >Alkaloids-Dragendroff’s Reagent

Rf VALUE: : 

Rf VALUE: In paper chromatography the results are represented by Rf value which represent the movement or migration of solute relative to the solvent front. The Rf value is calculated as : Distance travelled by the solute Distance travelled by the solvent front


DEVELOPMENT TECHNIQUE: There are various methods of development of paper chromatography… >DESCENDING CROMATOGRAPHY: In this method solvent moves from top to bottom so it is called descending chromatography. >ASCENDING CROMATOGRAPHY: In this case the solvent migrates upward by capillary action.

Slide 19: 

ASCENDING-DESCENDING CHROMATOGRAPHY: A hybrid of above two technique is called ascending-descending chromatography. Initial ascending chromatography is performed, often crossing the glass rod changes to descending. RADIAL CHROMATOGRAPHY: This is rarely used method, in this case a circular piece of paper is taken which has a wick cut parallel to the radius from the edge to centre. The sample is applied at the centre of the paper. The paper is then laid on the edge of circular disk with wick dipped into the solvent at the bottom of the dish.

Slide 20: 

TWO DIMENSIONAL CHROMATOGRAPHY: In this method a square paper is taken the sample is applied to the one of the corner. Using solvent system the first development is carried as ascending method. The paper is taken out dried and second development is performed at right angels to the first dimensional Development. APPLICATION OF PAPER CROMATOGRAPHY: Used in the separation of various organic mixture. Used in almost all area to solve complicated problems in chemistry, biology, biochemistry. Used for both qualitative and quantitative analysis.
