      Revisiting molecular weight distribution of polystyrenes using adsorption high-performance thin-layer chromatography
      C. JARNE, V. CEBOLLA*, L. MEMBRADO, E. GALVEZ, J. VELA, R. GARRIGA (*Instituto de Carboquímica, ICB-CSIC, C/ Miguel Luesma, 4, 50018 Zaragoza, Spain,

      J. Planar Chromatogr. 26, 5-13 (2013). HPTLC of polystyrenes with molecular weight from 1920 to 520000 Da on silica gel with cyclohexane - tetrahydrofuran 39:11. The method allowed different ranges of molecular weight to be separated as a function of mobile phase composition using slight variations of cyclohexane and tetrahydrofuran. Comparison with other techniques for molecular weight distribution analysis is also discussed.

TLC and HPTLC of polystyrene, poly(ethylene glycol), and polyvinylpyrrolidone on alumina and silica gel with i.a. cyclohexane - benzene - acetone 12:1:1. Detection by spraying with a 1.6% solution of potassium permanganate in concentrated sulfuric acid and heating at 180°C for 10-15 min. resp. by spraying with a 5% solution of iodine in chloroform. TLC of homopolymers is possible by addition of an adsorption-active component to the mobile phase.

      Polimeros. 26, 74-80 (2016). TLC of additives such as paraffinic oil (1), stearic acid (2), 2-mercaptobenzothiazole (3), and tetramethylthiuram disulfide (4) in rubber compositions of ethylene-propylene-diene rubber (EPDM) on silica gel with hexane – diethyl ether – acetic acid 14:6:1. After developing, the plate was heated at 105 ºC for 30 min and then cooled at room temperature. Detection by spraying with 1 % solution of 2,6-di-chloro-para-chloro benzoquinine imine in ethanol. The hRF values for (1) to (4) were 10, 65, 37 and 14, respectively.
