Example text

With heavily cross-linked supports, there is inhibition of transfer through the support thickness which can be overcome with an increase in gas pressure and temperature. Be aware that nonbonded, thick-coat columns are susceptible to dramatic column failure on heating or shock as the column coat separates from the support bed and beads up. 4 GC CONTROL VARIABLES 35 3. Column internal diameter. Decreasing the column diameter increases both efficiency n and retention k. Less material channels down the column center and the ratio of gas and liquid phase favors better interaction with the column.

Trap heating temperature and heating time are also under programmer’s control. A purge-and-trap system on the market will automate up to 16 purge tubes for liquid or solid samples. Another system uses only a single tube for liquid sample purge, but feeds samples into the purge tube from an autosampler. Obviously, some provision must be made for purge tube washout between samples to avoid cross contamination of sample. Both forms of automated purge-and-trap are specified for use in Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) approved methods.

These columns are more stable, give more reproducible results, less mass spectrometer contamination, and have longer working lives for GC/MS separations. A wide variety of stationary phase with different chemical composition are available. The most common film or bonded phase is nonpolar material such as methyl silicone. This packing type is stable, has a high capacity, and provides a separation that parallels the compounds’ boiling points. Low boilers come off first, high boilers last. This column is also described as a carbon number column since the more carbons in the compound’s structure, the later it comes off the column.
