Many gas chromatographic analyses require far less time than analysts employ. Higher sample throughput and specialized applications such as portable or process gas chromatography are some of the forces driving separations towards higher speeds. Peaks elute in less time when inlet pressures or column temperatures increase, and when column lengths, inner diameters, or stationary-phase film thicknesses decrease. But simply eluting peaks in less time doesn't guarantee the same degree of separation or resolution.
This audio seminar CD examines the ups and downs of GC in the fast lane, including these specific areas:
- What are the advantages and disadvantages of faster separations?
- What are the requirements for working at higher speeds?
- What can be achieved with standard laboratory gas chromatographs?
- How can I go faster than that?
- How can I estimate what my faster chromatograms would look like?
This Audio Seminar CD is presented by Dr. John Hinshaw, a worldwide expert on Gas Chromatography.
A detailed outline and Dr. Hinshaw's qualifications follow below.

Dr. Hinshaw is best known as the “GC Connections” column editor for LC/GC Magazine for the past 20 years. The author of over 110 publications and three books on GC, he has conducted numerous GC training courses and seminars both in the U.S. and overseas at local and national conferences as well as private corporations. He has worked in the analytical instruments field for over 25 years in research, instrument design and development, and applications at Varian, PerkinElmer, and now at Serveron, a producer of online GC analyzers.
He is a member of the Editorial Advisory Boards of LC/GC Magazine and the Journal of Separation Science. He is chairman of ASTM Subcommittee E13.19 on Chromatography and a member of IUPAC Analytical Chemistry Division V Committee on Analytical Chemistry, as well as a 25+ year member of the American Chemical Society. As the “GC Troubleshooting” and “GC Connections” column editor for LC/GC Magazine since 1986, Dr. Hinshaw has compiled an extensive collection of material that forms the basis of this course.
