Techniques & Tools Liquid Chromatography

Slip Flow Star

| Mary Wirth

The use of submicrometer particles in chromatography, viewed as heresy when first suggested a decade ago, is today seen as a possible quantum leap in separation efficiency. This is a first‑hand account of the origins of the idea, the experiments that yielded crystal-clear data and the literature on slip flow that provided an explanation of the remarkable findings.
