Modern Practice of Gas Chromatography

Fourth Edition
edited by Robert L. Grob
and Eugene F. Barry

The "bible" of gas chromatography–offering everything the professional and the novice need to know about running, maintaining, and interpreting the results from GC!

Analytical chemists, technicians, and scientists in allied disciplines have come to regard Modern Practice of Gas Chomatography as the standard reference in gas chromatography. In addition to serving as an invaluable reference for the experienced practitioner, this bestselling work provides the beginner with a solid understanding of gas chromatographic theory and basic techniques.

This new Fourth Edition incorporates the most recent developments in the field, including entirely new chapters on:

  • Gas chromatography/mass spectrometry (GC/MS)
  • Optimization of separations and computer assistance
  • High speed or fast gas chromatography
  • Mobile phase requirements: gas system requirements and sample preparation techniques
  • Qualitative and quantitative analysis by GC
  • Updated information on detectors
  • Validation and QA/QC of chromatographic methods
  • Useful hints for good gas chromatography

As in previous editions, contributing authors have been chosen for their expertise and active participation in their respective areas. Modern Practice of Gas Chromatography, Fourth Edition presents a well-rounded and comprehensive overview of the current state of this important technology, providing a practical reference that will greatly appeal to both experienced chomatographers and novices.
