INTRODUCTION It is also called as Medium Pressure chromatography. An air pressure driven hybrid of medium and short column chromatography. Invented by Clark &amp; Still of Columbia University in 1978. An alternative to slow and often inefficient gravity-fed chromatography. 2 3. Differs from the conventional technique in 2 ways: Slightly smaller silica gel particles (40 63 m) are used. Due to restricted flow of solvent caused by the small gel particles, pressurized gas (10-15 psi) used to drive the solvent through the column of stationary phase The net result is a rapid over in a flashand high resolution chromatography. 3 4. TRADITIONAL COLUMN CHROMATOGRAPHY Column Chromatography In the traditional column chromatography system, the user fills the glass columns with silica gel. The sample is placed on the top of the column. column runs by simply gravity flow The separation is very slow and is restricted to an isocratic solvent mixture. At the end of the run, the silica gel must be removed, cleaned, dried and re- packed. 4 5. In the modern Flash Chromatography system the glass columns are replaced with pre-packed plastic cartridges. Faster flow rates can be achieved by using a pump or by using compressed gas (e.g. air, nitrogen, or argon) to push the solvent through the column. Systems may also be linked with detectors and fraction collectors. The introduction of gradient pumps means quicker separations, less solvent usage and greater flexibility. EVOLUTION TO THE FLASH CHROMATOGRAPHY 5 6. PRINCIPLE OF FLASH CHROMATOGRAPHY. The eluent is, under gas pressure (normally nitrogen or compressed air) rapidly pushed through a short glass column with large inner diameter. The glass column is packed with an adsorbent of defined particle size. The most used stationary phase is silica gel 40 63 m. STATIONARY PHASE MOBILE PHASE 6 7. INSTRUMENTATION 7 8.

PROCEDURE FOR MICROSCALE FLASH COLUMN CHROMATOGRAPHY 9 10. then tamp it down before scooping more out Another way to fill the column is to pour the gel into the column using a 10 mL beaker 10 11. PRE-ELUTION OF COLUMN 11 12. LOADING OF THE SAMPLE. 1.Wet loading method. 2.Dry loading method. 1.The sample to be purified is dissolved in small amount of solvent. This solution is loaded onto the column. 2.Dissolve the sample in small amount of solvent &amp; add silica gel. Swirl the mixture until solvent evaporates &amp; only dry powder remains. This powder is loaded on the top of the column. 12 13. ELUTION THROUGH THE COLUMN 13 14. ANALYSIS OF THE FRACTION If the fractions are colored, combine like-colored fractions, although TLC before combination is usually advisable. If the fractions are not colored, they are analysed by TLC . Once the composition of each fraction is known, the fractions containing the desired compound(s) are combined. 14 15. 15 16. 16 17.

ADVANCED DETECTION TECHNIQUES FOR FLASH CHROMATOGRAPHY Compounds are often difficult to detect due to a lack of chromophores or, in the case of natural products, the compound absorbance is unknown. Evaporative Light Scattering Detection (ELSD) has long been used for High Performance Liquid Chromatography, but has only recently been employed for Flash chromatography. All-Wavelength Collection allows the collection of compound with unknown absorbance or collection in the presence of interfering solvent absorbance. 20 21. WORKING OF ELSD 21 22. CURRENT TRENDS IN FLASH CHROMATOGRAPHY GREEN FLASH CHROMATOGRAPHY. The ultimate flash chromatographic technology that achieves most efficient sample purification. The sample run is always carried out with minimum eluting volume. Eco-friendly. 22 23. FEATURES OF GREEN FLASH CHROMATOGRAPHY Optimal parameters for flow rate, run time, fraction volume, etc. will be calculated and set automatically upon selecting a column on Green Flash software. The default parameters will be shown in System Setting window. Software provides the maximum sample load information for the selected column. State-Of-The-Art Software Based On True Theory of Chromatography. Sample Eluting Position and Resolution Can Be Fully Controlled for Systems. Automatic Method Setup for Reverse Phase Chromatography. Parallel Detection of UV Detector and RI Detector or ELSD. 23 24. 24 25. ADVANTAGES Large quantities of the sample can be separated (0.5- 2g) Fast ( 1o to 15 minutes) Cost efficient If high resolution is required, flash chromatography is carried out before HPLC to avoid contamination of the expensive columns. 25 26. APPLICATIONS Flash Chromatography has various applications in following fields SYNTHETIC CHEMISTRY It is used as a tool to monitor the reaction progress and to isolate and identify a mixtures compounds. It is used for separation of Closely related organic compounds (isomer). It is used to purify ,collect and identify the various aromatic compounds in a semi-synthetic extracts. Mestranol Purification During Chemical Synthesis. 26 27. Amino modified silica is used with normal phase solvents and is better suited for nitrogen heterocyclic purification. It has received increased attention as a lead investigation and optimization tool in drug discovery. Bile Acid Purification During Lead Generation in Drug Discovery. In Anti-malarial Drug Purification in Drug Discovery. 27 28. BIOLOGICAL STUDY It is used for Purification of Protected Peptides. Normal phase Flash chromatography purified the protected Peptides segments and reversed phase Flash chromatography purified final free peptides. This two step purification eliminated the traditional costly &amp; difficult HPLC purification step 28 29. PHYTOCHEMISTRY Flash chromatography is a very valuable technique in the field of natural compounds research because it provides a fast and economical way to separate important phytochemical constituents of complex plant extracts. 1.Separation and Isolation of -Santalol and -Santalol from Sandalwood Extraction 2 .
