The 22-page document has been added as a PDF file under "Additional information". The following points are addressed:

  • Definitions
  • Peak symmetry
  • System sensitivity
  • System sensitivity
  • System repeatability
  • Adjustments of chromatographic conditions (for TLC, LC, and GC)
  • Supercritical fluid chromatography
