|Italian term or phrase: Fase attiva|
|Tale colonna così definita sarà riempita con una fase attiva che, attraverso semplici operazioni manuali, potrà essere sostituita per adattare il microsistema GC palmare a diverse situazioni analitiche.|
Mi sembra di capire, da questo e da altri contesti analoghi, che questa "fase" sia un liquido. Ma come renderlo? Va bene "active liquid", come m'era venuto in mente?
[CHIM ANAL] gascromatografia; GC
A separation technique involving passage of a gaseous moving phase through a column containing a fixed adsorbent phase; it is used principally as a quantitative analytical technique for volatile compounds.
These compounds are absorbed by the active phase which can be a portion of the surface. (See first reference - "The retention of mercury vapor by sulfur supported
on sepiolite has been studied, and the utility of sepiolite as a
dispersant for the active phase, sulfur, has been thoroughly
ascertained. Samples with 10% S supported on sepiolite of varying
size and shape have been prepared from powders sulfurized by
reaction/deposit, and their efficiency in depurating air streams with
95 ppm mercury has been tested in a dynamic system".
In fact a common absorbant is known as "activated charcol" basically because when active it selectively absorbs certain substances.
