Time-Resolved Ultrathin-Layer Chromatography (TR-UTLC) Programming Code

  • Author(s) / Creator(s)
  • This collection of programming code is designed for the analysis of video frames extracted from recordings of coloured sample separations in planar chromatography (TLC, thin-layer chromatography; and UTLC, ultrathin-layer chromatography). The tool set enables semi-automatic extraction of colour-filtered chromatograms and calculation of standard chromatographic separation performance metrics (figures of merit). The operation, limitations, and benefits of this time-resolved ultrathin-layer chromatography (TR-UTLC) approach have been thoroughly detailed in related publications: Chapter 6 “Time-resolved UTLC” in: S.R. Jim, Nanoengineered Glancing Angle Deposition Thin Films for Ultrathin-Layer Chromatography, PhD Thesis, University of Alberta (Edmonton, Canada) (2014) http://hdl.handle.net/10402/era.37014 and A.J.
