Thin Layer Chromatography

Finely ground imprinted polymer coated on to an inert support has been suggested for use in chiral TLC. Although only a limited amount of work has been done in this area, it has been shown that the racemates of a number of amino acids can be resolved. Problems were encountered due to band broadening, which led to the formation of zones rather than small spots or thin bands. This in turn led to band overlap and poor resolution, and measurements of R values were also made more difficult. However, this method may nevertheless be attractive for the determination of the enantiomeric purity of compounds such as a chiral drugs, owing to its simplicity, its speed and the possibility of running multiple parallel samples. Optimization of particle shape, size and porosity, similarly HPLC, will probably result in considerably improved shape of the bands.

Global warming is a huge problem which will significantly affect every country in the world. Many people all over the world are trying to do whatever they can to help combat the effects of global warming. One of the ways that people can fight global warming is to reduce their dependence on non-renewable energy sources like oil and petroleum based products.
