Summary A computer-assisted mixture design simplex method is presented for optimization of the separation of a mixture of five benzoic acid derivatives in reversephase HPTLC and twelve PTH-amino acids in normal phase HPTLC. A two-factor selectivity rectangle concept was used. The method is based on a special polynomial estimated from nine experimental runs, using the RF difference as the selection criterion, with connection to a general simplex method for optimization using a microcomputer. Excellent agreement is obtained between predicted data and experimental results, and more than half the number of experiments required in the general simplex method can be omitted.
