What is a general term used to describe any form of chromatography in which the stationary phase is more polar than the mobile phase?
Principle of Chromatography:
The principle of chromatography is that molecules in the mixture are applied to a surface (the stationary phase) which is used to separate the mixture components while moving through the stationary phase with help of the mobile phase. There are four general chromatography types: gas chromatography, thin-layer chromatography, paper chromatography, and liquid chromatography.
Answer and Explanation:

Adsorption chromatography uses a liquid or gas mobile phase to separate pigments. Explore different kinds of adsorption chromatography, such as thin layer chromatography and column chromatography, and how each method separates pigments.
