HPTLC is used in chemical analysis. High-Performance Thin Layer Chromatography (HPTLC) is a valuable tool to check the purity, and impurity of any non-volatile organic industrial materials such as dyes, surfactants, pesticides, perfumery compounds, intermediates etc.
It is far simpler, cheaper and easier to understand than other similar methods of analysis. HPTLC can be used very effectively in reverse engineering because it enables rapid comparison with e.g. standards provided by a buyer or other similar products in the market. Chemical reactions can be studied very quickly.
