We will begin the course with an introduction to the technique which defines the instrumentation and typical applications for GC-MS.
This session will mainly concentrate on the GC implications when using Mass Spectrometric detection. We will consider sample introduction, column dimensions, carrier type and flow rate as well as stationary phase chemistry which are typical and problematic for use with MS detection. We will highlight how to identify problems as well as how to make sure they don’t happen in the future!
