As the calculation of elution volumes and retention in CCC and CPC are using multiplications and divisions it is possible to do these on a circular slide ruler (or a normal one) by using logarithmic scales (because additions in that space correspond to multiplications in linear scale).

A bit of design, metallic-gold acrylic, flexible metallic with black background acrylic for the tag, and a piece of wood made by a colleague (Jim).
