Gas chromatography



Gas chromatography (GC) achieves separation of mixtures by partition of components between a mobile gas phase and a stationary phase. The most common form of gas chromatography is gas—liquid chromatography (GLC) in which the stationary phase is an involatile liquid coated onto an inert solid support. The second type of gas chromatography is gas—solid chromatography (GSC) in which the stationary phase comprises particles of a solid adsorbent.
