Terminology for Separation of Macromolecules

Published Online: 2014-07-17 | DOI: https://doi.org/10.1515/ci.2014.36.4.14b

Since the Compendium of Analytical Nomenclature – Definitive Rules 1997 (The Orange Book) covers size-exclusion chromatography (Chapter 9.2.6) and other modern separation techniques in polymer science insufficiently, it is necessary to review and define the terminology relevant to separation of macromolecules.

The document in preparation deals with the terminology—a typical and genuine field of activity of the IUPAC organization—used in separation of macromolecules. When completed, it will include various separation techniques used in polymer science and go beyond size exclusion chromatography. Examples are, interaction chromatography (IC), chromatography at critical condition (CCC), temperature rising elution fractionation (TREF), and field flow fractionation (FFF). These non-size exclusion chromatographic techniques have developed rapidly over the last two to three decades. Although the terms used in liquid column chromatography are the primary subject of this project, other related techniques such as TREF and FFF will be considered in a separate section of the document.
