Covering definitions, concepts, and applications, Countercurrent Chromatography recounts the developments in two types of liquid-liquid chromatography termed countercurrent-high-speed countercurrent chromatography (HSCCC) and centrifugal partition chromatography (CPC)-as well as the HSCCC-derived cross-axis CCC, a versatile technique for purificati

Theoretical approaches: characterization of the solvent systems used in countercurrent chromatography; experimental designs applied to countercurrent chromatography - definitions, concepts and applications; coil planet centrifuges for high-speed counter-current chromatography. Apparatus: centrifugal partition chromatography -operating parameters and partition coefficient determination; cross-axis countercurrent chromatography - a versatile technique for biotech purification. Applications: application of countercurrent chromatography in inorganic analysis; chiral separation by high-speed countercurrent chromatography; preparative scale separations of natural products by countercurrent chromatography.
