Troubling Peaks: Why Do Some Peaks Front While Others Don’t?
Why do some peaks front and others don't in the same method? In this featured case, injections of the reference standard gave normal, nearly symmetrical peaks, but when the samples were injected, the peaks rose more slowly from the baseline than normal, resulting in a fronting peak, where the first half of the peak is broader than the second half. John Dolan discusses the reasons behind this and how to correct the problem. More...
Automated Solid Phase Extraction of Base, Neutral and Acid Semi Volatiles in Waste Water
Solid Phase Extraction has long been used for the analysis of semi-volatile organics in clean matrices. Due to the unique challenges inherent with waste water matrices adhered to LLE protocols. Advances in packing materials and the new automated FMS TurboTrace ABN SPE extraction system are now making extractions of difficult matrices commonplace for SPE. Register to attend a Free Webinar on January 29th 11:pm EST learn how improve the quality and throughput for your laboratories extractions.
