In our second session we begin to explore the choices available for sampling and sample introduction. We discuss in-depth the choices for split and splitless injection and the important variables associated with each of these techniques.
We will consider important choices such as inlet liner design and selection, factors which determine split ratio and unique splitless injection parameters such as initial oven temperature and purge time.
We will also consider how to avoid insidious issues such as discrimination and backflash. In this session we will also investigate headspace analysis and other sampling techniques.
