"While research has been done on the chromatographic adsorption of the metallic ions, it has been confined mainly to the metallic salts in aqueous solutions. Considerable success has been met in the separation of the cations, but certain combinations have proved to be difficult to separate. Therefore, it would seem to be proper to examine the adsorptive behavior of the metallic ions in an organic medium to see if separation could be improved. This seems plausible since it is known that separations of organic substances have been very successful in organic reagents. Since the common inorganic metallic salts are not usually soluble in any organic solvents, it was thought that if the behavior of some of the metallic stearates were studied from a chromatographic standpoint, better separations might be brought to light. The practicability of the method would depend on the results obtained, but probably would have no commercial application at this time. Its nature is one of extending the field of chromatography, and if successful, might readily adapt itself to qualitative or quantitative analysis"--Introduction, page 1.
