This ISAKC Technical Luncheon is graciously sponsored by Emerson! This month’s presentation covers the fundamentals on how gas chromatography works. Gas chromatography refers to the separation techniques used to analyze volatile substances in the gas phase.  Gas chromatography is one of the sole forms of chromatography that does not utilize the mobile phase for interacting with the analyte. The stationary phase is either a solid adsorbant, termed gas-solid chromatography (GSC), or a liquid on an inert support, termed gas-liquid chromatography (GLC).  Sure….it SOUNDS simple,…
