Description

This comprehensive and unique handbook of split and splitless injection techniques has been completely revised and updated. This new edition offers:

- New insights concerning sample evaporation in the injector
- Information about matrix effects
- A new chapter on injector design

The real processes within the injector are for the first time visualized and explained by the CD-ROM included in the book. Furthermore the reader will understand the concepts of injection techniques and get a knowledge of the sources of error. The handbook also includes many practical guidelines.

From reviews of former editions:

"This substantial book is on injection techniques alone, which ... demonstrates this can have many pitfalls ... no one should be allowed to direct a laboratory doing quantitative analysis by GC without first being thoroughly familar with this book ..."
The Analyst

"This is a detailed reference volume filled with practical suggestions and techniques for managing split and splitless injection in the day-to-day world of the working gas chromatographer. It will be useful ... for anyone who must work hands-on with GC."
