About this book

This is a single source of authoritative information on all aspects of the practice of modern gas chromatography. It has comprehensive coverage of modern gas chromatography including theory, instrumentation, columns, and applications addressing the needs of advanced students and professional scientists in industry and government laboratories. Individual chapters are written by recognized experts on each topic.

Each chapter is complete with respect to its contents and can stand alone as a description of the topic presented. It presents the big picture of gas chromatography from theory, to methods, to selected applications. It provides references to other sources in associated areas of study to facilitate research. It gives access to core data for practical work, comparison of results and decision making.
