Covering the principles of chromatographic separation, the chromatographic process from a physical chemical perspective, instrumentation for performing analyses, and operational procedures, this second edition offers information needed for the successful practice of gas chromatography. It contains examples of available apparatus, detectors, columns, stationary phases and operating conditions.
"This book provides a valuable overview of GC and a detailed explanation of its theory. Definitely, this book should be a must for lovers of GC since it provides interesting insights into the earlier development of the technique, which actually can be applied to modern instruments to avoid trivial mistakes."
