TLC and polarity

Postby jackflag on April 7th, 2019, 11:00 am 

Hi I'm doing a lab with TLC and I have a polar TLC plate and a polar specimen. I know that because of those two being polar, the migration of my sample will be reduced, but if I use a more polar solvent for my mobile phase, will this increase the migration or reduce it? How does the polarity of the mobile phase affects the migration?

Thank you.
