High performance liquid chromatography (HPLC) is a separation technique utilizing differences in distribution of compounds in two phases; called the stationary phase and the mobile phase. The stationary phase designates a thin layer created on the surface of fine particles and the mobile phase designates the liquid flowing over the particles. Under a certain dynamic condition, each component in a sample has a different distribution equilibrium depending upon the solubility in the phases and or molecular size. As a result, the components move at different speeds over the stationary phase and are thereby separated from each other. These components are separated from one another by the column packing that involves various chemical and/or physical interactions between their molecules and the packing particles. These separated components are …show more content…
Mobile phase is constantly fed into the column inlet at a constant rate by a pump. The sample is injected from a sample injector, located near the column inlet. The injected sample enters the column with the mobile phase and the components in the sample migrate through it, passing between the stationary and the mobile phases. Compounds move in the column only when they are in the mobile phase. Compounds that tend to be distributed in the mobile phase therefore migrate faster through the column while compounds that tend to be distributed in the stationary phase migrate slower. In this way, each component is separated on the column and sequentially elutes from the outlet. Each compound eluting from the column is detected by a detector connected to the outlet of the column.
PRINCIPLE OF RP-HPLC
In RP-HPLC compounds are separated based on their hydrophobic character.retension is the result of interaction of then nonpolar components of the solutes and the non-polar stationay phase. Figure 2 High Performance Liquid Chromatography

    According to Ahmad S.A. and Lone S.R. “Hybrid Process (Pervaporation-Distillation)”, Distillation is a separation technique, in which a feed mixture of different components is separated into two or more reaction products by collecting the overhead distillate, formed as vapor or a mix of vapor and liquid, and keeping the remaining liquid solution in the reaction container. To achieve this: firstly, the feed has to contain a liquid or a mix of vapor-liquid mixture at the start of the reaction. Secondly, These different components in the feed mixture require to have different volatilities, so they will separate in gas phases when the temperature has reached their boiling points. All in all, distillation is achieved by vaporization and condensation…

    They are lyophilic, lyophobic and association colloids. Type of colloidal system: Type of colloidal system is suitable for sodium lauryl sulphate is association colloidal system. They are three types of colloidal system, in that association or amphiphilic is the third type of colloidal system. Association colloids are micro heterogeneous system, here the particles of the colloidal dispersed phase formed agglomeration of molecules or ions of the substance dissolved in the dispersion medium. Amphiphile or surface active agents are characterized by two distinct region of opposing affinities with the same molecule or ion.…

    The more polar substance will have a stronger interaction with the adsorbent and stay near the top and move down at a slower rate. The less polar substance has a weaker interaction and is able to separate and move down the column at a faster rate. These components are seen as colorized bands. The silica gel allows for a greater separation as it acts similarly to the theoretical plates found in distillation, with different equilibria occurring from interactions between the components of the mixture and its own structure. Thus, the eluted molecules can be collected in fractions, starting from the least polar components that go down the column at a faster rate and ending with the most…

    Additional time allows for more hydrocarbon to separate from the non-hydrocarbon phase, which aids in the recovery of the Naphthenic Diluent from the underflow stream. The underflow stream is then pumped to the Primary Cyclones for the next stage of separation. 3. Primary Cyclones The Primary Cyclones are much smaller conical vessels that cause separation due to centrifugal force. This force occurs since the feed enters at a higher pressure and velocity than the IPS units, the fluid is forced towards the outside perimeter of the small vessels creating a vortex inside of each cyclone.…

    Diffusion is important because it is how particles are moved into a cell and out. Diffusion is the movement of a particle from an area of higher concentration to an area of lower concentration (Reasoner 2011). Passive diffusion and facilitated diffusion are the two major types of diffusions. Passive diffusion, also known as simple diffusion, is when particles move freely through the lipid bilayer of the plasma membrane (Tortora and Derrickson 2014). Facilitated diffusion is when and integral membrane helps the particles move across the membrane because the solutes are too highly charged to move through the plasma membrane (Tortora and Derrickson 2014).…

    This is because the analysis of the solvent will only be completed when the solvent passed through the column. The types of HPLC are also determined by the column which the instrument used. The HPLC column is to operate the separation of the solvent. The stationary phase in the column is used to separate the mobile phase by using different types of physical and chemical parameters. There are many types of the HPLC column by differentiating by various dimensions.…

    The pressure difference allows to determine the rate of fluid or discharging flow through the pipe line. Since the inlet venturi is larger than throat venturi, it leads the increasing of velocity at the throat, resulting in decrease of pressure. As a result, we can see the different level between the tubes, which means the pressure difference between the inlet and the throat of the venturi. . In our experiment, the lowest pressure was measured at manometer D where it’s the least cross sectional area at the point.…

    2 Literature Review 2.1 Porous Materials For the purposes of this report, porous materials is defined as a medium containing voids[2]. The skeletal material is called the matrix and the voids are filled with a fluid (usually air). The physical properties of the materials can be characterised by bulk, macroscopic and microscopic properties. Most of which have an impact on the acoustical performance of the material. Sound energy is lost in porous materials when it is transformed into heat.…

    The instability starts near the interface and causes a sinuous movement to the interface. At higher temperature gradients, the instabilities increase and the movement becomes continuous. When temperature gradients are a sinuous wave was observed [26]. Also, when the concentration at the interface is less than the concentration at the slot the surface tension at the free surface accordingly reduces. This implies that the surface tension is inversely proportional…
