Using Alternative Carrier Gases with Accelerated ASTM D2887 Simulated Distillation Analysis
17 June 2016

This application note shows that with an MXT®-1HT SimDist column and Restek’s EZGC® online method translator, existing methods using helium can be easily converted to either hydrogen or nitrogen carrier gas. Because retention times are preserved with proper method translation, there are minimal changes to peak identification tables, which significantly simplifies method validation.
