Application of Gas Chromatography in the Petroleum Industry
Gas chromatography has become an important analytical tool in virtually every phase of the petroleum industry, from exploration of crude oil and refining of finished products to research on new petrochemicals. Because of the variety and complexity of sample types, petroleum chemists use a broad spectrum of gas chromatographic methods. Both laboratory and process instrumentation are employed extensively. The evolution of gas chromatographic analysis in the petroleum industry will be traced in conjunction with the development of new gas chromatographic instrumentation and specialized techniques.
