MetadataShow full item record
The current chapter emphasizes the use of high-performance thin-layer chromatography (HPTLC) as a green analytical separation alternative. The chapter provides historical development of thin-layer chromatography towards becoming modern, automated, high resolution technique in the form of high-performance thin-layer chromatography, and their further advances in miniaturization of chromatographic beds in the form of ultra-performance thin-layer chromatography (UPTLC). Also, following the three R philosophy (reduce, replace, reuse), and twelve principles of green chemistry, the chapter provides the short review of green sample pretreatment techniques coupled with the HPTLC. In addition, the use of green separation modalities such as reversed-phase chromatography, hydrophilic interaction chromatography and salting out thin-layer chromatography is emphasized. The use of thin-layer chromatography as a simple screening technique and a powerful sample pretreatment method is highlighted. © Spri...nger Science+Business Media Dordrecht 2014.
