A unique practical guide to building, using, and maintaining a complete GC/MS system.

Though gas chromatography/mass spectrometry (GC/MS) is one of the most effective and popular methods of separating, identifying, and quantifying compounds in complex mixtures, there have been no comprehensive handbooks to date that clearly explain the setup and maintenance of a functional GC/MS system. Now Marvin and Christopher McMaster have created the hands-on resource that researchers and students need to get their own systems up and running quickly. Covering everything from necessary components to tuning, troubleshooting, and processing data, it allows even those with little prior knowledge of GC/MS to perform their own analyses and gather the data they require. GC/MS: A Practical User's Guide contains:
* Full coverage of vital equipment, including the function, costs, and advantages of both desktop and floor-standing systems
* A walkthrough of a basic GC/MS analysis and an examination of key methods of structural data interpretation
* Extensive information on GC/MS system optimization
* An exploration of the various research and environmental uses of GC/MS systems
* An extended section on liquid chromatography/mass spectrometry to enhance comprehension of the gas method.

For organic, analytical, clinical, environmental, and forensic chemists in all types of laboratories-and for students in all of these specialties -this book will be an invaluable companion for years to come.

From the Publisher:

Gas chromatography/mass spectrometry (GC/MS) is a highly popular analytical system used by organic chemists and analytical chemists in research and in professional analytical labs, including environmental labs. It is used to separate, identify, and quantify individual compounds and substances. Chromatography was used to identify the ingredients of the World Trade Center bomb and was one the main reasons for the quick arrest of the suspects. This book provides information on using, maintaining, and troubleshooting analytical instrument systems in operations laboratories. It contains practical tips based on actual experience, and only enough theory to show the operational variables and how to control them. Readers will gain an understanding of the components in their systems and get them up and running more rapidly.
