Thin-layer chromatography (TLC) is a chromatography technique used to separate non-volatile mixtures. Thin-layer chromatography is performed on a sheet of glass, plastic, or aluminum foil, which is covered with a thin layer of adsorbent material, frequently silica gel, aluminums oxide (alumina), or cellulose. This layer of adsorbent is known as the stationary phase.
After the experiment, the spots are visualized. Often this can be done by projecting ultraviolet light onto the sheet; the sheets are treated with a phosphor, and dark spots appear on the sheet where compounds absorb the light impinging on a convinced area. Chemical processes can also be used to imagine spots; anisaldehyde, for example, forms colored adducts with many compounds, and sulfuric acid will char the most organic compounds, leaving a dark spot on the sheet. TLC plates (also known as chromatoplates) can be prepared in the lab. Silica gel and alumina are among the most common stationary phases, but others are available as well. Many plates incorporate a compound that fluoresces under short-wave UV (254 nm). The backing of TLC plates is often composed of glass, aluminum, or plastic. Glass plates are chemically inert and best withstand reactive stains and heat, but are brittle and can be complicated to cut. Aluminum and plastic plates can be cut with scissors, but aluminum may not withstand strongly acidic or oxidizing stains, and plastic does not endure the high heat essential to develop many stains. Global TLC Plates Market is segmented, By Product Types into Glass, Aluminum, and Plastic. Glass backed TLC plateis the glass plate due to its chemical resistance and the ease of handling the plate. The glass is having the high heating stability; also they are having Chemical resistance, and are also Transparent. Plastic-Backed TLC Plates are the Polyester sheets (about 0.2 mm thick) that have several advantages. They are resistant toward all common solvents, need less packing, and require less shelf space for storage. They can be easily cut with scissors into any required size, and the spots can be cut and eluted. Charring techniques can be applied for silica coated plastic TLC Plates. The charring has to be done at lower temperatures than on glass. The maximum temperature for plastic TLC plates is 160°C. Aluminum TLC Plates the thicker of aluminum support (about 0.15 mm thick), aluminum backed plates are much more stable and easier to cut than glass or plastic backed TLC plates. Aluminum TLC plate has a tensional strength that is most as good as glass plate. The aluminum TLC layer allows cutting of the sheets to any size desired without disturbing the sorbent layer. Plain aluminum foil is coated using the same time-tested binder system as for the TLC glass plates. Like plastic backed TLC plates sheets, glass and aluminum TLC plates can be sprayed or dipped with merely aqueous visualization reagents without any important damage to the layer.

As a solution to the issue of backing unsteadiness, using glass or polyester TLC plates is recommended. Aluminum backed TLC plates offer the same advantages as the plastic backed TLC plates with increased temperature resistance (e.g. for charring techniques).
