A method and program for accurate determination of Kováts' retention indices with special reference to multicomponent mixtures

  • I. -B. Peetre


A method for calculating accurate Kováts' retention indices, without the need for bracketing every compound in a mixture by two consecutive n-alkanes, is described. In addition, the method makes possible good control of the column conditions. The calculation is done using a FORTRAN program which is adapted to automatic operation and which also takes into consideration the change of retention time with the amount of substance injected.
