Default TLC protocols

Does anyone know of a Web resource listing TLC solvent systems for
separating different lipid classes? I've been Googling without much
luck - either nothing or too many hits depending on the query.

try to find a copy of "Thin Layer Chromatography" by Stahl. There you'll
find lots of basic receipes. If you have a more specialised problem, check
PubMed or simply ask here in the Bionet.

Hi Wolfgang.

I was sure I had a photocopy of the relevant chapter from Stahl,
but I'm unable to find it in my rather chaotic filing system and the
libraries here in Mendoza (Argentina) don't carry a copy. The medline
search turns up about 500 hits, most from pre-pdf days, which brings
me back to the limited library problem.

My specific problem is that I have an old vial (7 years) of
3H-palmitic acid (5mCi/ml) in ethanol, and I want to know if I need
to repurify it before use. I suppose the most probable chemical
contaminant would be the formation of ethyl-palmitate over time, but
I don't know what the radiolytic breakdown would produce.

If no-one has any experience with this, I'll see if I have
anyluck with NEN tech service. They'll probably just tell me to buy
some more.

If you have no luck with the Stahl, your best bet might be to use a
reversed phase matrix similar to the ones used in HPLC. A check for
"fatty acid" and "HPLC" might turn up something that can be adapted to
the TLC-format.

Note that for your application you will probably have to add carrier
palmitic acid to the sample and check by fluorography that the
radioactivity coincides with the palmitate spot.
