A chromatographic process in which the sample is placed onto the column head and then is displaced by a compound that is more strongly adsorbed than the compounds of the original mixture. Sample molecules then are displaced by each other and by the more strongly adsorbed compound. The result is that the eluted sample solute zones may be sharpened; displacement techniques have been used mainly in preparative-scale HPLC applications.
