Linearity of a flame ionisation detector for capillary gas chromatography

  • J. L. Marshall
  • B. Crowe


The influence of the nitrogen and hydrogen flow rates on the linearity of the flame ionisation detector is investigated and flow-rates which give a linear response over five orders of magnitude are determined.
