Liquid Chromatography

Also referred to as high-pressure liquid chromatography separates mixtures of compounds so that they can be identified. They differ from standard liquid chromatography systems in that they use a pump, as opposed to gravity to move the sample through the columns after having been introduced to the mobile phase. The various components of the sample move through the column at different speeds. The time that it takes an analyte to emerge from the column is called its retention time and this can be used to identify it
