Short description The Fourth Edition of Modern Gas Chromatography represents all of the changes in GC technology that have come about since the publication of the Third Edition. Specifically, four new areas of gas chromatographic significance have emerged: Large Volume Injection Systems; Fast or High Speed Gas Chromatography standing alone or combined with Time-of-Flight Mass Spectrometry; expanded use of computers in Gas Chromatography; and Sample Preparation.
