Product Description

Review

"Eminently readable...It is the sort of reference book that should be on the shelf of every laboratory that contains a gas chromatograph."
--Brian Bush, Wadsworth Laboratory, New York State Department in ANALYTICAL CHEMISTRY
"The treatment is superb and complete. The authors style of writing makes the book easy to read and interesting. Thus, if you desire a well-written, interesting treatment on the practical considerations involved in gas chromatography, emphasizing the selection, installation, evaluation, application, and basis for the use of open tubular glass capillary columns, this book should be your choice."
--Peter F. Lott, University of Missouri-Kansas City in THE JOURNAL OF AMERICAN CHEMICAL SOCIETY

From the Back Cover

This authoritative guide to chromatographic principles and practice has been simulated by interactions during hundreds of scheduled and extracurricular courses covering almost four decades. With a better understanding of how to manipulate and optimize the varibales in the chromatographic process, the analyst can improve the reliability of data generated, reduce the analytical time, and often forestall the need to purchase additional instrumentation.

Analytical Gas Chromatography, Second Edition, has been extensively rewritten and expanded with many new explanations and figures. Like its predecessor, this book is destined to become the gold standard for both instructional and reference use.

Format: Hardcover
Analytical gas chromatography, second edition is an excellent reference book for those of us who take gas chromatography seriously, not as a fringe technology, nor learn enough to get by. The second edition was substantially revised from the first edition. Very up to date information with insights on why things appears in certain way. Chapter 5, variables in the gas chromatographic process, and chapter 6 (subsection 9), optimizing operational parameters for specific columns, and chapter 8 on selective tuning are very useful and invaluable.

Format: Hardcover
This book has an excellent chapter on injections. The rest of the book contains things you can typically find in your user's manual. If you are interested in knowing every single aspect of the GC, this would be a good book. If you are just trying to get the GC up and running with a new compound, this may not be your best bet. Too much information and not enough time to absorb it all.
