About the book

The present book will describe the latest directions where progress is being made in analytical liquid chromatography. Being the most widely utilized analytical technique, the field of liquid chromatography and in particular HPLC/UPLC did reach a certain level of maturity. However, continuous and important progress is being made in the field, some with immediate and important applications for the analysis of a wide range of molecule types, and some only with the potential for future applications. Also, a very large amount of information is available about analytical liquid chromatography in peer-reviewed journals, books, manufacturer publications, and on the web.

A synthesis of the information related to the progress in the field, including a critical view of the latest achievements related to the analytical liquid chromatography will be the subject of the present book. The material will be organized as systematically as possible including information about the latest progress in HPLC regarding new stationary phases, novel types of mobile phases, and progress related to instrumentation in particular related to miniaturization. Although analytical liquid chromatography is unsurpassed by other analytical techniques regarding quantitative analysis, there are still problems regarding compound identification even using mass spectrometric detection.

The book is intended to contain a specific chapter regarding the progress in the use of analytical liquid chromatography for qualitative identifications. Besides the focus on HPLC, other types of liquid chromatography such as novel developments in thin layer chromatography will be included in the book.
