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 volatile compounds into the individual components. This technique is used extensively through out our program with the organic chemistry lab having three systems in the lab and a HP-5880 GC in one of the instrument rooms.
