Abstract

This paper addresses the recent advances in gas chromatographic (GC)-based instrumentation for the analytical determination of environmental toxicants using small samples. One-dimensional GC/time-of-flight mass spectrometry (TOFMS) and comprehensive two-dimensional GC (GC×GC) are shown to drastically improve sample component resolution, sensitivity and overall analytical throughput. A presentation of the concepts behind the new state-of-the-art, and results highlighting the advantages of the emerging technologies are presented.
