Improving GC Performance Systematically
March 01, 2017
Gas chromatographers can control several variables that affect their separations: carrier-gas flow, column temperature, column dimensions, and stationary phase chemistry. When faced with less than optimum resolution or separation speed, a strategy of changing just one variable at a time can be more productive than trying to hit the goal in one attempt. This month's GC Connections examines how to use such a plan to obtain better GC results.
