    High-performance liquid chromatography (HPLC) is a powerful analytical tool which has application to flexible packaging materials. The technique can be used for qualitative and quantitative evaluation of material components and processing variations and for physical characterization. Speed, versatility, accuracy, and sensitivity can be achieved by judicious selection of equipment components and separation techniques. HPLC applications to flexible packaging materials are described.
