Comparison between thin layer chromatography and paper chromatography
- The principle behind thin-layer chromatography is based on adsorption. On the other hand, the principle of paper chromatography is based on partition.
- Thin-layer chromatography requires more preparation time compared to paper chromatography.
- In thin-layer chromatography, corrosive reagents can be used but not in the case of paper chromatography, as the corrosive agents can destroy the paper.
