The reason for the minimum in a plot of plate height versus flow rate occurring at lower rates with LC than with GC is to be stated. Concept introduction: LC refers to liquid chromatography and GC refers to gas chromatography. Diffusion refers to the movement of any substance from a region of high concentration to a region of low concentration. This phenomenon generally takes place in liquids as well as gases since their particles execute random motion from one place to another. It is a concentration driven mass transfer process.
