Figure 7-7. Illustration of a box-counting method, which counts the fraction of bins in a two-dimensional separation bed that is occupied by peaks. This fraction enables correction of the total peak capacity for incomplete usage of the separation space. Circles represent coordinates of observed peaks in an experimental LC x LC separation. The red (gray line in print versions) line defines the perimeter around the bins that are considered to be occupied. LC, liquid chromatography.
