Abstract

An analysis is presented for the flow separation process in hydrodynamic chromatography along with comparisons to experimental data. The flow separation model is based on calculations for the convected Brownian motion of colloidal particles in a capillary tube in the presence of a force field. The results indicate the role of the relevant experimental parameters in the separation process.
