chro·ma·tog·ra·phy

(krō′mə-tŏg′rə-fē)
A technique used to separate the components of a chemical mixture by moving the mixture along a stationary material, such as gelatin. Different components of the mixture are caught by the material at different rates and form isolated bands that can then be analyzed.
