Carefully diluting a sample with weak solvent can mitigate the impact of sample solvent on peak shape in both reversed-phase and HILIC separations, but we need to understand how the choice of sample diluent can affect analyte recovery.
Although manufacturers ship gas chromatographs with a collection of consumable parts and accessories, a number of other essential items should be on hand in every GC laboratory. What items are needed and how can they be used most effectively?
In on-site environmental applications, representative sampling and proper replication are essential. For these reasons, recent work in thin-film solidphase microextraction has focused on the development of unique holders and customized samplers that are tailored for distinct sampling environments. Here, we explore the latest developments.
