Guest Author: Badaoui Omais, Ph.D. Molecular characterization of petroleum products is a challenge to understand due to their formation, enhanced refining processes, and physical properties. From petroleum crude oil, the Continue Reading
All great love stories must start at the very beginning. And Ramkumar Dhandapani’s 15-year relationship with gas chromatography goes way back to his high school years in India. Ramkumar always Continue Reading
In the first GC columns, gas chromatography phases were simply coated onto the column. This was mostly the case with packed columns, but also the same with the very first capillary columns. Injecting water onto these phases dissolved the phase and caused the phase to elute from the columns.
Guest Author: Ramkumar Dhandapani, Ph.D.- Gas Chromatography Technical Manager In gas chromatography (GC), the separation of analytes is achieved primarily based on boiling point (Van der Waal’s interaction), although other intermolecular Continue Reading
