Ion exchange chromatography is probably the most powerful and classic type of liquid chromatography. The popularity of ion exchange chromatography has been increased in recent years because this technique allows analysis of wide range of molecules in pharmaceutical, biotechnology, environmental, agricultural and other industries for water purification to separation of various antibiotics from fermentation broths which will enhance the yields and reduce the production time for industrial process. The main objective of this particular study is to develop some understanding for the process of ion exchange and helps to determine whether or not ion exchange will be useful for a particular application. This topic includes background, theory, instrumentation, application which covers both the production of the ion exchange substance, a resin and its operation depending on the condition of matrix during use.
