Pixabay/Esi Grünhagen: Building Blocks for a Robust GC Method
This presentation will go over building a GC method. We will discuss what to consider, where to start, and what to optimize. To do this we will cover inlet parameters, column selection, and oven programming. This will help you to produce a method that will maximize resolution and minimize run time.

Injecting water into your GC may be convenient especially if you are working with compounds that have limited solubility in organic solvents or are working with water samples. But, there are many potential problems with water including injector and detector issues. Join us as we dive deep and explore water injections. We will discuss not only how to do them correctly, but also the many pointers to keep in mind when working with water.
