Since the publication of the highly successful first edition of Basic Gas Chromatography, the practice of chromatography has undergone several notable developments. Basic Gas Chromatography, Second Edition covers the latest in the field, giving readers the most up-to-date guide available, while maintaining the first edition's practical, applied approach to the subject and its accessibility to a wide range of readers.

The text provides comprehensive coverage of basic topics in the field, such as stationary phases, packed columns and inlets, capillary columns and inlets, detectors, and qualitative and quantitative analysis. At the same time, the coverage also features key additions and updated topics including:

Gas chromatography-mass spectrometry (GC-MS)

Sampling methods

Multidimensional gas chromatography

Fast gas chromatography

Gas chromatography analysis of nonvolatile compounds

Inverse gas chromatography and pyrolysis gas chromatography

Along with these new and updated topics, the references, resources, and Web sites in Basic Gas Chromatography have been revised to reflect the state of the field. Concise and fundamental in its coverage, Basic Gas Chromatography, Second Edition remains the standard handbook for everyone from undergraduates studying analytical chemistry to working industrial chemists.

Incl. both capillary column & packed column chromatography, IUPAC terms cross-referenced to traditional terms & symbols.

Editorial Reviews

Offers thorough coverage of basic principles and techniques of modern gas chromotography, serving as a primer/working reference for bench chemists and as a text for upper-level undergraduate and graduate students. Theoretical issues are explained without complicated equations and derivations and always in terms of how they relate to practical operating principles. Coverage includes both capillary column and packed column chromotography, as well as cutting-edge topics such as chiral analysis and solid phase microextraction. Includes step-by-step guidelines and trouble shooting tips, reference appendices, and use of new IUPAC terms cross-referenced to traditional terms and symbols.

From the Publisher
"The appendixes and troubleshooting guides included at the end of the chapters are very helpful. This book will be useful to students, researchers, and industrial scientists." (CHOICE, June 2010)
