After completing this activity, students will be able to:

  • Differentiate different types of columns (i.e., WCOT, PLOT, packed), their dimensions, applicability and diffusion factors affecting the separation
  • Evaluate suitability of common stationary phases for different analytes
  • Distinguish types of interactions between the analytes and stationary phase
  • Justify the selection of a stationary phase based on its interactions, stability, and bleed with the targeted analyte
  • Evaluate and explain the column bleed
