Micellar Thin Layer Chromatography In Separation Of Toxic Metal Ions
The chromatographic behavior of heavy
metal ions have been studied on aminoplast polymer
as stationary phase using anionic surfactant Sodium
laureth sulfate (SLS) as mobile phase. Effect of (a)
concentration of surfactant in the mobile phase,(b)
acidity or basicity of surfactant containing developer
medium and (c) the presence of strong and weak
electrolytes additives in the mobile phase system.
Semiquntatative determination of Cd2+
measurement of spot area was attempted.
Identification of Zn2+
from river water,
industrial waste water with preliminary separation has
