This term is used to express the extra-column volume
. Strictly speaking, the term 'dead-volume
' refers to volumes within the chromatographic system which are not swept by the mobile
phase. On the other hand, mobile phase is flowing through most of the extra-column
volumes. Due to this ambiguity the use of term 'dead-volume
' is discouraged.
