Type of chromatography using as the stationary phase a thin layer (0.01 inch [0.25 mm]) of a special finely ground matrix (silica gel, alumina, or similar material) coated on a glass plate or incorporated in a plastic film. Solutions of the mixtures to be analyzed are spotted near one edge. Solutions of reference compounds are similarly applied. The edge of the plate is then dipped in a solvent. The solvent travels up the matrix by capillarity, moving the components of the samples at various rates because of their different degrees of attachment to the matrix and solubility in the developing solvent. The components, visible as separated spots, are identified by comparing the distances they have traveled with those of the known reference materials. TLC is useful for biological mixtures, especially lipids in animal or vegetable tissues and isoprenoids and essential oils found in flowers and other parts of plants. The matrices withstand strong solvents and developers better than the paper used in paper chromatography

Woodlands as they grow may become crowded as it is often the case that more trees are planted than are predicted to survive At intervals during a woodlands development foresters will selectively remove trees to create the desired density and remove any sick or malformed trees This process is known as thinning and allows the remaining trees to develop broader crowns and to grow strong and healthy Thinning also allows increased light to the woodland floor and encourages a herb layer of plants to develop and for increased natural regeneration

The etching away of silicon from the backside of a CCD Thinning is done in a large bath of acid (see left) The device is mounted on a support (see left) and agitated Wax is used to mount the device to its support, since the acid does not attack wax When the acid has eaten away a certain amount of silicon, the CCD that was once 0 010" thick becomes approximately 0 0005" thick! (That acid must be hungry )
