Original Papers Instrumental Optimizations in Spectrometry


A new method of spectral detection in thin-layer chromatography (TLC) is given. Spectral reflectance and fluorescence can be measured by use of fiber optics and a photodiode array. The possibilities of the method with respect to quantitative evaluation, background subtraction, and recognition of overlapped spots are demonstrated at examinations of dyes in comparison to conventional single wavelength detection. The apparatus, the experimental limitations, and future developments are discussed.
