To revise and elaborate the terminology on the separation of macromolecules
in the "Compendium of Analytical Nomenclature' (Orange
Currently the terminology on the separation
of macromolecues is included in a section "9.2.6 Special
Terminology Used in Exclusion Chromatography" of the orange
book. It does not seem to cover terminology used in exclusion chromatography
sufficiently. Furthermore, many separation methods other than exclusion
chromatography have been developed and employed in the macromolecular
separation field recently. Therefore, it is necessary to revise
and expand the terminology on separation of macromolecules and publish
it as a separate document, which also will be incorporated in the
next new edition of the Orange Book and possibly other relevant
The document deals with the terminology on the separation of macromolecules,
which is typical and unique field of activity of the IUPAC organization.
The document will include various separation methods widely used
in macromolecular separation beyond size exclusion chromatography,
which includes interaction chromatography, chromatography at critical
condition, temperature rising elution fractionation, field flow
fractionation, and so on.
As the first step, the terms used in the
liquid column chromatography will be the primary object for this
project. The other related techniques such as TREF and FFF will
be considered together, but with next priority.
