Glossary of liquid chromatographic terms
Reversed-phase chromatography (RPC). The most common HPLC mode. Uses hydrophobic packings such as octadecyl- or octylsilane phases bonded to silica or neutral polymeric beads. Mobile phase is usually water and a water-miscible organic solvent such as methanol or acetonitrile. There are many variations of RPC in which various mobile phase additives are used to get a different selectivity. For example, for the RPC of anions, the addition of a buffer and tetra-alkyl-ammonium salt would allow ion pairing to occur and effect separations that rival ionexchange chromatography.

RPC (remote procedure call)

A mechanism through which applications can invoke procedures and object methods remotely across a network. Using RPC, an application on one machine can call a routine or invoke a method belonging to an application running on another machine.
Noman's Java(TM) Glossary
Remote Procedure Call. Executing what looks like a normal procedure call (or method invocation) by sending network packets to some remote host.
Jensen's Technology Glossary
Remote Procedure Call protocol that allows a program on one computer to execute a program on a server computer. Using RPC, a system developer need not develop specific procedures for the server. With RPC you call a specific function whereas with an ORB you call a method within a distributed object. In ORB each object manages its own private instance of the data whereas in RPC you can only call a specific function and all functions get implemented in the same way. ORB allows for differential processing.  See CORBA .
Internetworking Terms
See: Remote Procedure Call
An easy and popular paradigm for implementing the client-server model of distributed computing. In general, a request is sent to a remote system to execute a designated procedure, using arguments supplied, and the result returned to the caller. There are many variations and subtleties in various implementations, resulting in a variety of different (incompatible) RPC protocols. [Source: RFC1208]
