Numerical Simulation of Fluid Dynamics in a Monolithic Column
AbstractAs for the measurement of polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs), ultra-performance liquid chromatography (UPLC) is used for PAH identification and densitometry. However, when a solvent containing a substance to be identified passes through a column of UPLC, a dedicated high-pressure-proof device is required. Recently, a liquid chromatography instrument using a monolithic column technology has been proposed to reduce the pressure of UPLC. The present study tested five types of monolithic columns produced in experiments. To simulate the flow field, the lattice Boltzmann method (LBM) was used. The velocity profile was discussed to decrease the pressure drop in the ultra-performance liquid chromatography (UPLC) system. View Full-Text
