This handbook describes the first systematic treatment and further development of simple solutions to the key problems of column performance in temperature-programmed GC.
In so doing, it answers such questions as:
* At what temperature does a solute elute in a temperature-programmed analysis?
* What is the value of the retention factor of eluting solute?
* How wide are the peaks?
* How large is the time distance between two peaks?
* How do all these parameters depend on the heating rate?
