i don not exactly but i think chromatography is a versatile technique for separating mixtures
The separation of a mixture by passing it in solution or suspension or as a vapor (as in gas chromatography) through a medium in which the components move at different rates.
a process used for separating mixtures by virtue of differences in absorbency
Chromatography (from Greek chroma "color" and graphein "to write") is the collective term for a set of laboratory techniques for the separation of mixtures. ...
refers to a set of techniques used to separate different compounds. The word comes from the Greek chromatos (color) and graphein (to write). So, as one might guess, chromatography involves separating chemicals and identifying them by color.
In biology, there is something called a thin layer chromatography which determines what type of pigment a leaf has
as everyone else has said, chromatography is a separatory technique, but the separation is based on the partition coefficients of the substances. There are more specialized techniques of chromatography but that is the main idea.
