Retention index values of hydrocarbons on open-tubular columns coated with methylsilicone liquid phases

  • N. G. Johansen
  • L. S. Ettre


The influence of temperature and liquid phase film thickness of open-tubular (capillary) columns on the retention index values of hydrocarbons on methylsilicone liquid phases is discussed. Data obtained on methylsilicones and squalane are compared. Retention index values of 43 hydrocarbons between 40 and 70 °C on OV-101 liquid phase are listed.
