About the book

Gas chromatography (GC) is a powerful analytical technique with a wide range of applications. The capability for quantitative measurements of analytes in a complex mixture and the unsurpassed capability for compounds identification when GC is coupled with mass spectrometric detection, make GC an irreplaceable tool for analytical chemistry. GC is a mature analytical technique invented about 70 years ago and is still subject to continuous development. A large amount of information is available on GC, in original studies published in peer-reviewed journals, in books, in manufacturer catalogs, and on the internet. Since new advancements and novel applications are continuously reported, a material that collects and presents in a synthetic manner this information on GC can be very useful. The present book is dedicated to the collection of this more recent information regarding developments in GC, and its presentation in a readily accessible form. It will include subjects on advancements in GC instrumentation related to techniques of sample injection, GC column technology, detection in GC particularly related to mass spectrometry, as well as subjects related to novel applications of GC, both analytical and non-analytical.
