Capillary Gas Chromatography: Getting the Best Separation Without Turning (Too Many) Wrenches

This column will examine simple steps that can be taken to optimize a separation without changing the column. Adjusting temperature, flow, and sampling with an eye towards the classical method optimization goals of high resolution, high speed, high sample capacity, and ease of use will be discussed.
