12: Gas Chromatography

  • Page ID
  • Gas chromatography (GC) is a common type of chromatography used in analytical chemistry for separating and analyzing compounds that can be vaporized without decomposition.

    • 12.1: Gas Chromatography
      In gas chromatography (GC) we inject the sample, which may be a gas or a liquid, into an gaseous mobile phase (often called the carrier gas). The mobile phase carries the sample through a packed or a capillary column that separates the sample’s components based on their ability to partition between the mobile phase and the stationary phase.  Largely as it appears in Harvey's analytical chemisty with a small number of additions
