GC @ separationsNOW

The Gas Chromatography channel covers all techniques used for the separation of gases, in addition to the supercritical phase.

This includes multidimensional techniques (e.g. GCxGC) and hyphenated techniques (e.g. GC-MS).

Last Month's Most Accessed Feature: Heart-cutting GC stops citrus fakery

Citrus fruits and their products, such as essential oils, are found in a wide range of foods and perfumery formulations, but can be adulterated with synthetic compounds or cheaper natural extracts. Scientists from South Korea and Pakistan used heart-cutting multi-dimensional gas chromatography and mass spectrometry to determine the enantiomeric excess of various citrus compounds, measurements of which should detect adulteration.

Analysis of Environmental Contaminants in Water Using an Agilent 6470 LC/TQ Instrument

The analytical demands for detecting organic contaminants in water at low ng/L level have pushed the development of new methodologies using LC/TQ instrumentation. In this regard, and in the last few years, advances in sensitivity and selectivity have made this challenge possible. This webinar will focus on the use of the new 6470 LC-MS-MS from Agilent Technologies for the sub ng/L level detection of several pharmaceuticals and pesticides in surface waters. Examples of optimization of several source...

GC-MS run times can now be much shorter than with traditional methods due to a number of recent developments. Scientists from Tel Aviv University applied a combination of open probe fast GC and mass spectrometry to obtain rapid results from a wide variety of different analytes.

Post-consumer food packaging waste has been characterized by sensory analysis and 2D high resolution gas chromatography coupled with mass spectrometry and olfactometry to help produce odour-free recyclates.

Orbitrap defeats the athletes who cheat

Detection of the increasing number of compounds used as doping agents by sport competitors represents a significant challenge. Scientists from the Brazilian Doping Control Laboratory at the Federal University of Rio de Janeiro and Thermo Fisher Scientific (Austin, Texas) have developed a new Orbitrap GC-MS method for detecting a variety of doping compounds.
