Basic Multidimensional Gas Chromatography is aimed at the next generation of multidimensional gas chromatography users who will require basic training in the fundamentals of both GC and GCxGC. This book fills the current need for an inexpensive, straightforward guidebook to get new users started. It will help new users determine when to add or purchase a multidimensional system and teach them to optimize and maximize the capability of each system. Readers will also learn to select specific modes for each portion of a multidimensional analysis. This ideal resource is a concise, hard-hitting text that provides the facts needed to get users up and running.

Key Features

  • Provides a comprehensive and fundamental introduction to multidimensional gas chromatography
  • Assists readers in determining when to add or purchase a multidimensional system
  • Explains how a given system can be used to its maximum capacity and how users should choose specific modes for different portions of multidimensional analysis


New users, managers, trainers and trainees in analytical science that wish to use multidimensional GC techniques. It will provide a quick and fundamental introduction to the various aspects of multidimensional GC, especially as they differ from traditional GC
