      Planar displacement chromatography
      H. KALÁSZ (Semmelweis University, Department of Pharmacology and Pharmacotherapy, H-1089 Budapest, Nagyvárad tér 4, Hungary)

      J. Planar Chromatogr. 17, 464-467 (2004). Displacement chromatography (DC) has been widely used to separate metabolites with similar chemical characteristics. DC works with highly overloaded sample sizes, which are normal for samples not subjected to clean-up. DC successfully handels samples which contain high concentrations of salts and/or proteins, and results in consecutive steps of displaced compounds rather than Gaussian curves. Planar displacement chromatography (DTLC) is suitable for seeking new metabolites in excreted body fluids. Transfer of the radiolabeled methyl group can easily be proven using spacer-displacement planar chromatography. Displacement TLC of L-deprenyl and 14C-L-deprenyl on silica gel with chloroform - triethanolamine 19:1. Detection by X-ray film with an exposure time of 120 h.
