      Development of nontraditional planar chromatographic methods
      V.G. BEREZKIN (A. V. Topchiev Insitute of Petrochemical Synthesis, Russian Academy of Sciences, Leninskii pr. 29, Moskow, 117912 Russia;

      J. Planar Chromatogr. 21, 325-329 (2008). Development and systematization of nontraditional TLC methods, in which the chromatographic process occurs in a closed absorption layer on a standard TLC plate. The advantages and limitations of the methods were assessed and the expediency of their further development and wider use in practical TLC was proved.

      Comparison of methods for separating polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons by high performance thin-layer chromatography

      J. Chromatogr. 302, 149-158 (1984). HPTLC of polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons on different stationary phases with various mobile phases in several development modes, conventional, continuous, and multiple development. Reversed-phases in separation using RP-18 silica and methanol - water or methanol - water based ternary solvent system gave the best result.

      Chromatography of organometallic and organometalloidal derivatives of amino alcohols
      V.A. BELIKOV*, V.D. SHATZ, E. LUKEVICS, (*Inst. Org. Synth., Latvian SSR Acad. Sci., Riga, USSR)

      IV.: Comparison of retention behaviour in gas-liquid, thin-layer and high-performance liquid chromatography. J. Chromatogr. 388, 161-177 (1987). TLC of organometalloid derivatives of amino alcohols on silica with solvent systems consisting of isopropanol and hexane. Detection by iodine vapor and wetting with water. Calculation of Rm values. Comparison of the retention behaviors in GC, TLC and HPLC.

      Classification: 2a, 6, 26a

      Adsorption chromatography on cellulose
      A.O. KUHN, M. LEDERER, (Inst. Chim. Miner. Anal., Univ. Lausanne, CH-1015 Lausanne, Switzerland)

      I. Salting-out chromatography of organic compounds. J. Chromatogr. 406, 389-404 (1987). Study on the adsorption on cellulose of organic compounds from aqueous ammonium sulfate solutions. The adsorption increases with increasing concentration of ammonium sulfate for all compounds examined. Investigation of the relationship between RM values and the activity of ammonium sulfate. Conclusion: the mechanism of adsorption is a non-specific hydrophobic interaction.

      Classification: 2a

      Retention behavior of some classes of pharmaceutical products on chemically modified thin-layer chromatographic plates
      J. DINGENEN, A. PLUYM, (Dep. Chem., Dev. Janssen Pharm., B-2340 Beerse, Belg.)

      J. Chromatogr. 475, 95-112 (1989). Studies of the characteristics of some commonly available precoated polar modified TLC plates, using normal and reversed-phase conditions with a series of butyrophenones and benzimidazol-z-ones as model compounds. Examination of the influence of different types of salts, salt concentration, organic modifier content, the use of ion-pair reagents and pH values of retention behavior.

      Classification: 2a, 32

      Combined use of normal and reversed phase thin layer chromatography in the screening for basic and quaternary drugs
      I. OJANPERÄ*, J. VARTIOVAARA, A. RUOHONEN, E. VUORI, (*Dept. Forensic Medicine, Univ. Helsinki, Kytösuontie 11, SF-00300 Helsinki, Finland)

Evaluation of the combination for identification with the mean list length method: a value of 1.7 obtained for the present combination, and values of 2.5 and 5.5 for another TLC/RPTLC combination and a TLC/TLC combination, respectively (95% cumultative probability). Study on the influence of Rf correction on RPTLC reproducibility.

      Gibt es nicht auch die DC? Isn't there something called TLC?
      Gertrud MORLOCK (CAMAG, Sonnenmattstr. 11, 4132 Muttenz, Switzerland)

      Laborscope 2, 5-7 (1997). HPTLC is growing in importance because of its cost effectiveness although it is an off-line system (only the individual steps of TLC are automated). Advantages of TLC are given. Devices for application, chromatography, detection and documentation are presented showing the state of the art in TLC. Also published in CLB 48, 292-293 (1997).

      A standardized approach to modern high-performance thin-layer chromatography (HPTLC)
      E. REICH*, Anne SCHIBLI (*CAMAG Laboratory, Sonnenmattstr. 11, 4132 Muttenz, Switzerland)

      J. Planar Chromatogr. 17, 438-443 (2004). Proposals for general standardized HPTLC methodology: 1. Plate material (consistent material, prewashing, direction of development, activation of plates, influence of relative humidity). 2. Sample application (precise and accurate volume, solvent, position, spot or bandwise application). 3. Preparation and storage of mobile phases (stability, possible reaction). 4. Development (saturation, use of a twin-trough chamber, influence of the vapor phase, distance, drying). 5. Derivatization (dipping, spraying, heating). 6. Documentation of plates. 7. Labeling (plates, images). 8. Quantitative evaluation 8. Documentation of work.
