The state of the art of various special analytical planar chromatographic methods is summarized especially for forced-flow planar chromatography (FFPC), overpressured-layer chromatography (OPLC) and rotation planar chromatography (RPC) as well as for the automated multiple development (AMD) technique. The connection between analytical planar and column liquid chromatographic methods and the identification of separated compounds with chromatographic and spectroscopic data are summarized. Some aspects of future perspectives, such as parallel connected multi-layer FFPC and long distance OPLC (LD-OPLC) are given. A combination of OPLC with the AMD method is predicted as the method of the future. Strategies using FFPC techniques are suggested in the form of a flow chart.
