Dr. Ömür Çelikbıçak was born in 1978 in Konya, Turkey. He received his Diploma (M.Sc.) and his Doctorate (Ph.D.) in Chemistry, in 2005 and 2011, respectively, both from the Hacettepe University, Turkey. He started his academic career as a research assistant at Hacettepe University, Chemistry Department under supervision of Prof. Dr. Bekir Salih in 2002. From 2008-2009 he was a research scholar in the mass spectrometry research laboratories at the Chemistry Department of The University of Akron, OH. Since 2011 he has been working at Hacettepe University as a post doctoral researcher. His research interests focus on the development of novel mass spectrometry methods and their chromatography coupled applications for the study of structures, interactions, fragmentations and detection of the various molecules in the gas phase.

Gas Chromatography involves the study of various vaporizable molecules in chemistry and the other related research fields. This analytical method has a number of features and advantages that make it an extremely valuable tool for the identification, quantification and structural elucidation of organic molecules. This book provides detailed gas chromatography information to applications of biochemicals, narcotics and essential oils. The details of the applications were briefly handled by the authors to increase their comprehensibility and feasibility. This guide should be certainly valuable to the novice, as well as to the experienced gas chromatography user who may not have the enough experience about the specific applications covered in this book. We believe this book will prove useful in most laboratories where modern gas chromatography is practiced.
