About this book

Static Headspace-Gas Chromatography: Theory and Practice has long been the only reference to provide in-depth coverage of this method of analysis. The Second Edition has been thoroughly updated to reflect the most recent developments and practices, and also includes coverage of solid-phase microextraction (SPME) and the purge-and-trap technique.

This is an important resource on an increasingly useful technique. It should be in the library of any chromatographer...Essential. (CHOICE, November 2006)


Theoretical Background of Headspace--Gas Chromatography and Its Applications.; The Technique of Headspace--Gas Chromatography.; Sample Handling in HS--GC.; Headspace Methods for Quantitative Analysis.; Method Development in HS--GC.; Nonequilibrium Static Headspace Analysis.; Qualitative Analysis by HS--GC.; Special Measurements.; Indexes.

Dr. Bruno Kolb is an internationally recognized expert on gas chromatography. He joined Perkin--Elmer in Germany in 1962, where he worked on GC applications and on instrument development with special emphasis on specific detectors. Until his retirement in 1996 he managed the GC--applications laboratory within the marketing group. He has been a guest lecturer for 10 years at the University of Konstanz, as well as at many international meetings, and has published many journal articles, book chapters, and books. Dr. Leslie S. Ettre was associated with the Perkin--Elmer Corporation for over 30 years before retiring in 1990 as a senior scientist. From 1988 to 1994 he served as an adjunct professor at the Department of Chemical Engineering of Yale University, and remains associated with the Department as a Research Affiliate. He has lectured widely in many countries of the world, published over 200 scientific and technical papers, and has served as the author and editor of numerous books, including the Encyclopedia of Industrial Chemical Analysis. Dr. Ettre's many awards include the National Award in Chromatography of the ACS, and the AJP Martin Award of the Chromatography Society, the highest honors in the United States and Europe, respectively.
