The Power of Separation Science to Prepare Chromatographic Materials - Luis Colón at Pittcon 2023

In this interview, Luis Colón, the A. Conger Goodyear Professor in the Department of Chemistry at the State University of New York at Buffalo, defined HPLC as a separation technique using a chromatographic column and discussed the differences between gas chromatography, liquid chromatography (HPLC), and supercritical fluid chromatography.

Colón also explained the concept of photochromism, where certain molecules change conformation and color upon light absorption, and the potential research applications of photochromic compounds like diarylethenes. He highlighted the challenges associated with isolating these compounds due to their conformational isomers and discussed the use of liquid chromatography and supercritical fluid chromatography for their analysis.
