Still a popular text today, the first edition of Chromatography: Concepts and Contrasts was one of the first books to cover all of the different types of chromatography. This new Second Edition offers the latest information on the topic while preserving the clear, unified approach that has made the original a classroom favorite.
Chromatography: Concepts and Contrasts, Second Edition presents the theoretical base common to various chromatographic methods, giving readers a set of general concepts for a broad understanding of the practice before moving on to discuss specific techniques. It covers gas chromatography (GC), liquid chromatography in columns (LC), and thin layer chromatography (TLC), as well as related topics such as extraction, solid phase extraction, solid phase microextraction, and mass spectrometry. The resulting text combines technical depth and comprehensiveness with accessible language and clear descriptions.
New material covered in this Second Edition includes:
- Sample preparation
- Capillary electrophoresis and capillary electrochromatography
- Chromatography with mass spectrometric detection
- Applications in chemistry, biology, and other areas
- Industrial and government practices in regulated industries
- Internet resources for chromatographers
Whether used as a graduate or upper–level undergraduate textbook, or as a guide for professionals, Chromatography: Concepts and Contrasts, Second Edition provides the most concise, comprehensive, and up–to–date chromatography resource available today.

…a practical, hands–on approach…" (CHOICE, July 2005)
"…an excellent introduction to all the chromatographic techniques for both the industrial practitioner and the…student because of its unified treatment, its modern approach, and up–to–date references." (Journal of the American Chemical Society, June 29, 2005)
"Professor Miller should be congratulated for the book...should be on the shelf of every practicing chromatographer...students taking separations science courses could also use it as their standard textbook." (Chromatographia, February 2005)
