A Novel Method of using Ion-Exchange Resins

Nature volume 166, page 66 (08 July 1950) | Download Citation



WHEN considering a chromatographic method for separating a complex mixture, it is desirable to choose an adsorbent which functions through only one type of adsorption mechanism. Most adsorbents in use to-day lack this desirable property, so that the displacement chromatographic technique of Tiselius is not always applicable. It is the purpose of this communication to describe a novel chromatographic method of using ion-exchange resins so that only one of two possible adsorption mechanisms associated with their use can function.
