Homework Help: Chem.

Posted by Chelsea on Tuesday, November 3, 2009 at 12:56am.

If you had a mixture of benzene, toluene, and m-xylene, what would be the expected order of retention times? Explain.

I know benzene would have a retention time of 3 mins, toluene about 4.8 mins, and m-xylene about 5.6 mins, right? Therefore, the expected order of retention times would be benzene with the lowest and m-xylene with the highest retention time. However, I do not know how to explin this. Please Help!
