Column Chromatography

Column chromatography of proteins employs as the stationary phase a column containing small spherical beads of modified cellulose, acrylamide, or silica whose surface typically has been coated with chemical functional groups. These stationary phase matrices interact with proteins based on their charge, hydrophobicity, and ligand-binding properties. A protein mixture is applied to the column and the liquid mobile phase is percolated through it. Small portions of the mobile phase or eluant are collected as they emerge (Figure 4-1).
