Abstract:  Chromatography is an analytical technique based on the separation of molecules due to differences in their structure and/or composition. In this article, the author discusses practical aspects of gas chromatography theory, samples and sample preparation, hardware (injectors, carrier gas, column/stationary phase, oven detector and recorder), quantitative analysis and validation. Figures show a schematic of a gas chromatograph and an example chromatogram illustrating gas chromatography analysis of menthol with decanol used as an internal standard.
