LCGC TV: The Pros and Cons of GCxGC
Two-dimensional gas chromatography has advanced considerably since its first emergence in the late 1980s and its first applications for the hydrocarbon fingerprinting of crude oils. In a new interview, Frank L. Dorman of Penn State University talks about  the evolution of GCxGC and the key advantages and disadvantages of the technique, including why fear of its complexity gets in the way of its broader use.

The LCGC Blog: Measuring Quality...
The title will already have many of you shouting at your screen – of course we can’t measure quality. But we can measure uncertainty and build a quality system that helps to produce data that are fit for purpose. Surrogates, internal standards, isotopically labelled standards, external standards, calibrants, QC samples, and so on — our working lives are littered with checks to ensure that our instruments are giving us the correct results. But do we always use these checks correctly? Do we know what we are checking and why? Let’s find out. More...

The Role of Selectivity in Extractions: A Case Study
Many of the extraction techniques developed over the past generation tout selectivity among their advantages. In reality, solvent selection and the use of stationary (sorbent) phases are the main mechanisms for providing selectivity. Therefore, selectivity is often limited to isolation of classes of compounds rather than individual structures. In this instalment of Sample Preparation Perspectives, the selective removal of a fat substitute in food products is discussed to demonstrate options for obtaining selectivity during extraction More...
