Gas chromatography is an extremely important analytical tool and one of the most widely used separation techniques in the chemical, biological, and medical fields. Essential for monitoring and characterizing organic chemicals in industrial products, body fluids, and the environment, gas chromatography is widely used for the detection, identification, and quantitation of trace substances in many fields. This volume reflects the technique's diverse applicability and covers all its major uses. Topics include instrumentation-operation and experimental considerations, capillary column development, technology and performance, selected applications of low and high performance column modes, methods for chemical derivatives, and chiral separations by GC, among others. Chemical and biological analysts as well as chromatographers in industrial and academic settings want to own this invaluable two-volume set.
"One of the best gas chromatography books I've seen in a long time. Written for both the beginning and more advanced chromatographer. It takes a detailed look at all aspects of gas chromatography from the instrumentation to applications. The best part of this book...was the protocols which gave the reader information on everything from changing the septa to installing the column. This is a book for the real world chromatographer and covers possible problems and applications for almost any type of analysis. I highly recommend it as a supplement to an undergraduate course or as the main text book for a graduate level course on chromatography." --Microchemical Journal
