Centrifugal Layer Chromatography-Rotation Planar Chromatography

M. Móricz, I. Vovk

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


This chapter describes two techniques, which are based on the use of centrifugal force: forced-flow layer liquid chromatographic technique-rotation planar chromatography (RPC; centrifugal layer chromatography) and forced-flow solid-liquid extraction technique-rotation planar extraction (RPE). The theoretical aspects of RPC, development and the state of the art of the instrumentation, characteristics of RPC techniques and practical aspects of RPC, preparation of chromatographic plates, circular, anticircular, and linear modes of the separations, as well as fully off-line, on-line, and mix mode separations are also discussed. Classification of different technical solutions, multiple developments, as well as several applications in the field of analytical, micropreparative, and preparative separations using planar layers and planar columns are also described. A multifunctional technical solution that enables the RPE, analytical and preparative separation of natural compounds from different plant matrices is also demonstrated.
