dead-volume [obsolete]

in chromatography
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.
