Rate Theory

February 27, 2012

A method of describing chromatography behavior. It uses the process of peak dispersion (band spreading) and provides an equation that allows the calculation of the variance per unit length of a column (the height of the theoretical plate, HETP) in terms of the mobile phase velocity and other physical chemical properties of the solute and distribution system. See Plate Theory and HETP.
