More than ever, this international symposium not only covers liquid chromatography, but alternative separation techniques such as capillary electrophoresis, capillary electrochromatography and microfluidic separation techniques, i.
The second edition continues with these principles but has been updated to include new chapters on sampling and sample preparation, capillary electrophoresis and capillary electrochromatography (CEC), chromatography with mass spec detection, and industrial and governmental practices in regulated industries.
An area closely related to CE that has yet to reach its stride is capillary electrochromatography (CEC), which combines features of CE with LC by using capillaries, packed with chromatographic materials.
