Since the publication of the highly successful first edition ofBasic Gas Chromatography, the practice of chromatography hasundergone several notable developments. Basic GasChromatography, Second Edition covers the latest in the field,giving readers the most up-to-date guide available, whilemaintaining the first edition's practical, applied approach to thesubject and its accessibility to a wide range of readers.
The text provides comprehensive coverage of basic topics in thefield, such as stationary phases, packed columns and inlets,capillary columns and inlets, detectors, and qualitative andquantitative analysis. At the same time, the coverage also featureskey additions and updated topics including:Gas chromatography-mass spectrometry (GC-MS)Sampling methodsMultidimensional gas chromatographyFast gas chromatographyGas chromatography analysis of nonvolatile compoundsInverse gas chromatography and pyrolysis gaschromatography
Along with these new and updated topics, the references,resources, and Web sites in Basic Gas Chromatography have beenrevised to reflect the state of the field. Concise and fundamentalin its coverage, Basic Gas Chromatography, Second Editionremains the standard handbook for everyone from undergraduatesstudying analytical chemistry to working industrial chemists.
