CCC 2016 | Overview & Themes

Workshop Jul 30+31

The conference will be preceded by a two-day workshop for those less familiar with the technology, or those wanting to have a master class for their own particular application.

Conference Aug 1+2+3

Each day will feature presentations ranging from keynotes and oral presentations to flash presentations on selected posters.

General Theme 

CCC 2016 intends to bring together scientists from all around the globe that develop and apply CCC/CPC methodology in their research. At the same time, CCC 2016 intends to provide state-of-the-art information on the technology for those that are interested in the discipline.

Specific CCC 2016 Themes 

Specifically, CCC 2016 will be dedicated to the following topics:

  • Development of new Countercurrent Separation Methods
  • Countercurrent Instrumentation and Design
  • Application of Countercurrent Methodology in Biomedical Research
  • Bioassay-Driven Use of Countercurrent Separation Methods
  • Countercurrent Methodology in Natural Product Analyses
  • New Solvent Systems and Advanced Selection Methods
  • Emerging Technologies that Involve Countercurrent Processes

Counter-current chromatography (CCC) and Centrifugal Partition Chromatography (CPC) are unique liquid-liquid extraction/chromatography processes with a support free liquid stationary phase. As both phases are liquid either phase can be the mobile phase opening up a range of different operating modes, including continuous processing. There is no adsorption to solid supports, particulates are tolerated and the high volume proportion of stationary phase means that there is high loading capacity and high resolution separation with a low number of theoretical plates.
