Preparative Layers

These are thicker layers of any of the above sorbents to allow larger quantities of sample solutions to be applied. These layers are 0.5, 1 or 2 mm thick (compared to the usual analytical thickness of 0.25 mm). Usually the sample is applied to the plates as a streak by some automatic device. The thicker the layer, the more sample solution that can be applied (Figure 6). Such a plate is used in the traditional manner, but will generate greater heat of solvation if using a silica plate with a developing solvent with a polar modifier. This will make spots or bands travel faster, and a readjustment of the solvent ratios may be necessary to reduce the band travel.
