Make a powerful debate about the early history of gas chromatography and how you will introduce it in simple words?
Earlier history of gas chromatography
Gas phase separations through adsorption were reported in the start of 1900s it was not until that the gas chromatography was reported until 1952 that the true significance and potential of the gas chromatography was realized.
Introduction to gas chromatography
Gas chromatography can be defined as :
“Gas chromatography is such a technique in which different component of a mixture are separated in the gaseous state as sample passes over the stationary phase or over the mobile phase”.Difference in the relation of sample components and between the stationary phase is responsible for the separation.
Now in modern days gas chromatography has been widely distributed among both chemical and physical sciences.
Advantages of gas chromatography
Gas chromatography has many advantages as following:
Used in different type of analysis :
Gas chromatography has been widely used in both type of analysis qualitative and quantitative.
Shortage of time
Less time is used and by the use of simple instrumentation.
Applicable to the organic compounds:
Due to great sensitivity this method can be applied up to 60% of the organic compounds known to the man.
Citation over the other examples:
Examples of gas chromatography can be cited over the other examples of other techniques .the sample which cannot be separated and simplified,can be straight forwarded by gas chromatography.
Separation of cis and trans isomers:
Different type of isomers cis and trans isomers of oxygen can also be separated by this technique.
Separation of pesticides:
Success full separation of pesticides isotopes can also be separated the help of selection of suitable column.
