The object of this course is to give students an advanced understanding of gas chromatography, how the instruments work, how to use them correctly, how to ensure that developed methods successfully solve lab problems, and how to better understand and interpret results. This will be achieved through a better knowledge of how the instruments function, their strengths and limitations, coupled to a more advanced understanding of the theory behind important applications of the techniques. It is aimed at more experienced users, who wish to extend their skills and understanding, and at laboratory managers who want a better knowledge of the techniques they supervise.

The course will examine in detail the following: Improving GC separations through carrier gas flow considerations and effective oven temperature programming; Correct liner and column selection will be discussed, paying attention to selectivity, efficiency and resolution; Inlet optimization will be discussed in detail, showing how different factors contribute to improved chromatography; The theoretical plate theory of chromatography and the rate theory will be discussed as models to better understand the way separations can be improved.
