"The book should appeal to readers with varying levels of education and emphasises a practical, applied approach to the subject. Basic Gas Chromatography, 2nd Edition remains the standard handbook for everyone from undergraduates studying analytical chemistry to working industrial chemists. It is particularly suited for intensive short courses." (Chemistry Journals, 11 April 2011)
From the Back Cover
The New Edition of the Well–Regarded Handbook on Gas Chromatography
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.
