There have been significant developments in gas chromatography (GC) technology in recent years. In this volume, authors from respected industrial and academic laboratories around the world discuss the many advances in this field over the last decade, with an emphasis on new technologies. The book will provide examples of injection systems that have now been rationalized and made more reliable, column coatings that can now be designed for optimal performance of specific applications, and other new developments in gas chromatography.
Gas Chromatographic Techniques and Applications provides an accessible source of information on the essential principles, instrumentation, methodology, and applications of various aspects of gas chromatography. Each chapter begins with an introduction, reviews the history of the process, provides a detailed explanation of the current technology, discusses specific examples, and concludes with a reference section. Numerous spectra, figures, photographs, and diagrams are included to further comprehension of topics discussed. This resource will keep you up to date on the latest developments in the field and will help you to employ them in your laboratory.
