Provisional Recommendations

Analytical Chemistry Division
Commission on Separation Methods in Analytical Chemistry

The Hold-Up Volume Concept in Column Chromatography

Revised recommendations are presented for the nomenclature of the hold-up volume in chromatography, updating those originally presented in the IUPAC document "Nomenclature for Chromatography (IUPAC Recommendations 1993)", Pure Appl. Chem., 65, 819-872 (1993). A number of related and derived definitions for retention parameters are described, including a definition of the term "chromatographic system". The paper also compares methods used in the literature to determine the hold-up volume.
