Improve GC Separations with Derivatization
29 March 2011
This application note from Restek demonstrates that derivatized hormones show much better resolution and more symmetric peak shapes than underivatized hormones when analysed by GC. Derivatizing compounds for GC often is necessary to obtain reproducible chromatographic results. Eliminating this step to save time can be costly and produce inaccurate and unreliable results.
