The chromatographic curve resulting from pulse injection of a reactant into a chromatographic column may contain significant information about products. Under some conditions, the elution volume or time at one-half the step height of the product curve approximates the characteristic elution volume, or time, of product material. This may even be true when reactants give several products. Such information may be used for product identification and obtaining solution thermodynamic data.
