Thin layer chromatography (TLC) is another type of adsorption chromatography , which invovles seperation of substances of a mixture over a thin layer of an adsorbent coated on glass plate . A thin layer (about 0.2 mm thick) of an adsorbent ( silica gel or alumina ) is spread over glass plate of suitable size .

As the solute does not make any of chemical bond to the inert support but the solute that is to be separated is gonna be form weak forces on the interface of surface and mobile phase so it is defined as adsorption chromatography.
