The magnetic chromatography (MC) is a very useful system for an ion and/or fine magnetic particle separation due to its strong magnetic field gradients in a very small flow channel. We have not only developed the MC system to separate the fine particles and ions, we have also developed the numerical analysis computer code based on the fluid dynamics and electromagnetism to investigate the separating characteristics and to optimize design of magnetic column. In this paper, we studied MC technology for magnetic particles and ion separations using micro-scale magnetic column with ferromagnetic wires experimentally. The influences of the strength of magnetic gradient, flow velocity and coefficient of viscosity of solvent were studied by the developed computer code.
