Thin Layer Chromatography (TLC) Principle Explained

Video   Jun 25, 2018

 

This lecture explains about the thin layer chromatography (TLC) technique. TLC principle is well explained with examples. Thin layer chromatography is the easy method to separate different types of chemical molecules from each other with the help of thin layer chromatography plate also known as the TLC plate. Thin layer chromatography separates molecules based on the differential movement rate in the tlc stationary phase which is calculated with the retention factor or Rf value.

The focus of a forensic toxicology laboratory is to determine the presence or absence of drugs in biological samples. Often times when it comes to drug testing, the sensitivity of the analytical method is critical because scientists need to detect chemical compounds in very small amounts. Multidimensional liquid chromatography (2DLC) is one option forensics labs can use to test biological samples, such as urine, blood, oral fluid, hair, to determine if an illicit drug or toxin played a role in a person's death.
