Gas Chromatography in Biology and Medicine

IN the preface to the first edition of one of the earliest books on chromatography, Principles and Practice of Chromatography (Zechmeister and Cholnoky, 1943) there is written: “Every scientific advance is an advance in method.” It is also stated in this prefcice that “the invention of a new specialized laboratory procedure brings about rapid conquests in new fields of science and technology, finally it exhausts itself and is replaced by a still more practical method. The method of chromatographic adsorption invented by the talented Russian botanist, Professor M. Tswett makes possible spatial separation of components of a mixture. It is just now at the beginning of a bullish development : it offers a simple experimental procedure to the investigator especially in the fields of both pure and applied organic chemistry, of biochemistry and of physiology.”
