Technical note: Overcoming the limitations of split/splitless inlets using large-volume injection
This paper provides a short overview of the drawbacks of split/splitless inlets used for GC, and how these can be tackled through large-volume injection (LVI) using the OPTIC-4 multi-mode inlet from GL Sciences.
Improved characterisation of materials using pyrolysis with GC×GC–TOF MS
Pyrolysis coupled with two-dimensional gas chromatography and time-of-flight mass spectrometry (Py–GC×GC–TOF MS) can be used for quality control of consumer products, including tyres, plastics and paper.
Fast analysis of semi-volatile organic compounds using PTV-GC–TOF MS
This study demonstrates the improvements in efficiency and sensitivity that can be achieved by using programmed temperature vaporisation (PTV) with GC and time-of-flight mass spectrometry (TOF MS) for the analysis of semi-volatile organic compounds relevant to environmental monitoring.
