What is High Performance Liquid Chromatography(HPLC)?

HPLC stands for High Performance Liquid Chromatography.
Its earlier name was High Pressure Liquid Chromatography because it involved use of liquid mobile phase requiring higher pressures than gases used in Gas Chromatography. The technique has found immense scope of applications in both academic and industrial laboratories requiring identification and quantification of mixtures of organic compounds.
