Contents Notes
Instrument overview -- Basic concepts and terms -- Stationary phases -- Packed columns and inlets -- Capillary columns and inlets -- Detectors -- Qualitative and quantitative analysis -- Programmed temperature -- Special topics -- Troubleshooting GC systems. Gas Chromatography (GC) is undoubtedly the most widely used technique for the separation and analysis of volatile compounds. Yet comprehensive guides to contemporary GC theory and practice are surprisingly hard to find. Basic Gas Chromatography fills this significant void in the GC literature. Written by two well-known practitioners and educators in GC, it offers thorough coverage of the basic principles and techniques of modern chromatography. Designed to serve as a primer/working reference for bench chemists and as a textbook for upper-level undergraduate and graduate students, it presents the fundamentals in a straightforward and logical fashion. Theoretical issues are explained without complicated equations and derivations and always in terms of how they relate to practical operating principles.
