I have a 0.65 m column with van Deemter parameters A=0.22 mm, B=21.7 mm mL/min, and C=0.018 mm min/mL. If it takes at least 85 theoretical plates to fully separate two solutes, what range of flow rates can be used to separate the solutes?
Here are some resources to better understand the van Deetmer Equation:
