Dean Rood A Practical Guide to the Care, Maintenance, and Troubleshooting of Capillary Gas Chromatographic Systems Third, Revised Edition The field of gas chromatography continues the evolutionary process. This is well demonstrated by the continuous series of developments - in columns, equipment, apparatus, techniques, and applications - that have occured since the publication of the first edition of this very successful offering. Problems experienced by users differ from case to case, and these differences sometimes necessitate different approaches to care, maintenance, and trouble-shooting. This book is intended for the average GC user and not for those whose entire life revolves around capillary gas chromatography. The topics covered within these pages are based on the most common problems, questions, and misconceptions about capillary gas chromatography. These topics have been assembled and presented in a unique, practical, and concise format suitable even for the most inexperienced user. The author has not changed his successful approach to the topic in the present third edition. Instead, he has focused on updating and correcting the text of the widely acclaimed second edition.
