1-day GC Columns, GC Detectors & Mass Spectrometers

First, analytical columns for gas chromatography are covered in detail including the theory, optimisation and applications of packed and capillary columns, the separation process and types available. This is followed by a brief introduction into many types of detectors used in gas chromatography both universal and selective. Flame ionisation (FID) and electron capture (ECD) detectors are covered in detail. The course then focuses on mass spectrometry principles and the data generated; the types of mass spectrometers available that are hyphenated to GC; their vacuum systems, ionisation techniques, mass filters and detectors.
