It is proposed here to study the different parameters that can affect the quality of a TLC and the visualization of the deposited compounds.
Some organic products will be used here as a support to highlight these parameters.
Before performing a TLC, you must:
- Index vials and pour the different solutions into these containers
- Write the number of the experiment on the various TLCs boldly in pencil
- Remember to firmly close the vials containing solvents or solutions.
- Carry out the deposits, the introduction of the TLC into the chamber, as well as the elutions of the solutions under a hood.
