Is it possible to take purified a virus particle and dissociate it into a mixture of its constituent proteins (and nucleic acids)?

I am wondering if it would be possible to disassemble the particle in solution such that the resulting solution would contain all of the individual viral components but in disassembled form. Then by diluting this solution further, small samples of the resulting solution would contain random subsets of the components of the virus. Do such protocols exist?

Thank you
