What is a Mobile Phase?

The mobile phase refers to the solvent mixture being pumped through the column. Because it is moving on a continuous basis, it is referred to as mobile.

Mobile phase chemical properties are often different than stationary phase properties. The difference between the properties is used to dictate the type of separation that takes place; therefore, optimal sample component separation is achieved through the use of the appropriate stationary phase and mobile phase compositions.
