Gas Chromatography in the Study of Pollution
Gas chromatography is used in air- and water-pollution studies for determining aliphatic and polynuclear hydrocarbons, for studying automotive exhaust gases, and for measuring pesticides. Contaminants in the closed atmospheres of space vehicles can also be monitored. The major problems encountered are in sampling, where the concentration of a pollutant is frequently in the parts per million range or less.
