A quadratic programming method was developed for the statistical
analysis of gas chromatographic data. The method was applied to
three types of flavor extracts, peppermint, hops and brewed tea. The
brewed tea data had to be abandoned because of the singularity of its
coveriance matrix. In all cases tried the...
A method for the determination of selenium in biological
materials by gas-liquid chromatography has been developed and
successfully applied to kidney, heart, liver, and muscle tissue. The
initial digestion of animal tissue was accomplished in a mixture of
nitric and perchloric acids (3:1) until "water whiteness'' of solution
The study of diffusion coefficients of n-alkanes and other organic compounds in silicones is undertaken by gas-liquid chromatography. About 0. 3% of stationary phase is coated on glass bead support so that the only significant source of peak spreading is due to slow liquid phase mass transfer. Diffusion coefficients are...
Diffusion of short chain n-alkanes was found to be faster in the
polydimethylsilicone elastomer SE-30 than in the polydimethylsilicone
oil SF-96-2000. The opposite was true for the longer chain n-alkanes
suggesting that choice of stationary phase for gas chromatography
would depend on the chain length of sample components. The dependence...
Gas-solid chromatography often has asymmetrical elution
peaks. This is attributed to nonlinear isotherms, multi-energy
adsorption sites, and slow processes. This study utilized a stopflow
gas chromatograph with various NaOH and NaCl modified
aluminas as adsorbents and methane as adsorbate to determine the
influence of surface area and pore volume distribution...
A classification of stationary liquids by infrared spectroscopy to evaluate the polarity was made using the solvent effect technique. The infrared C-Cl absorption frequency shift was measured for solutions of 1-chlorohexane dissolved in each stationary phase. These frequency shifts were correlated to the relative retention times of 1-octene/n-octane, trans-2-octene/n-octane and...
