Some Geometric Effects observed in Thin-Layer Chromatography of Lipids

Kayama, Mitsu
Nevenzel, Judd C.
Some components of complex lipid mixtures were resolved better in trapezoidal, reverse trapezoidal, or diamond-shaped channels than in the usual rectangular TLC channel. This superiority was apparent from both the observed Rf values and the increased number of radioactive peaks detected by scanning. The results are explained qualitatively in terms of the amount and direction of solvent flow in the different configurations.
