Gas Chromatography

Theory and applications of gas chromatography.

Gas chromatography is a analytical scientific technique to separate a mixture of vaporizable substances and resolve the mixture into single components.

The gas-liquid chromatography is thus an analytical or preparative separation technique of chromatography that is based on the principles of partition chromatography and adsorption chromatography. After the chromatographic separation by the gas chromatograph, the individual substances are identified by different detector systems - such as by mass spectrometry.
