GAS CHROMATOGRAPHY (GC)

Gas chromatography is for materials that can be easily converted to a gas, what HPLC is to materials that are dissolved in some kind of solvent. GC can be used to separate very complex mixtures of volitile compounds into the individual components. This technique is used extensively through out our program with the organic chemistry lab having three Shimadzu GC-8A systems in the lab and the one above in one of the instrument rooms.
