Size-exclusion-chromatography separation of randomly branched polymers with tetrafunctional branch points and local dispersity.
Summary of "Size-exclusion-chromatography separation of randomly branched polymers with tetrafunctional branch points and local dispersity."
The SEC separation of a randomly branched polymer, in particular local dispersity due to branching, are theoretically examined. A model of the SEC separation of randomly branched polymer with tetrafunctional branch points enabling the estimation of local dispersity was developed. Measurable quantities (branching indices) were compared with real data. Local dispersity due to branching is demonstrated to depend on elution volume and degree of branching and in the area of the beginning of the elution curve it can reach non-negligible values.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions
A method of gel filtration chromatography using agarose, the non-ionic component of agar, for the separation of compounds with molecular weights up to several million.
A hybrid separation technique combining both chromatographic and electrophoretic separation principles. While the method was invented to separate neutral species, it can also be applied to charged molecules such as small peptides.
A separation technique which combines LIQUID CHROMATOGRAPHY and CAPILLARY ELECTROPHORESIS.
A method of separation of two or more substances by repeated distribution between two immiscible liquid phases that move past each other in opposite directions. It is a form of liquid-liquid chromatography. (Stedman, 25th ed)
Use of various chemical separation and extraction methods, such as SOLID PHASE EXTRACTION; CHROMATOGRAPHY; and SUPERCRITICAL FLUID EXTRACTION; to prepare samples for analytical measurement of components.
