Organic Analysis (GC/LC)

General sample requirements

  • Compounds of interest must be extracted out of the samples and into solution.

  • Extracted samples must be free from particulates and precipitates.

  • Ideal solvents for GC methods are volatile solvents such as hexane, diethyl ether or dichloromethane.

  • For HPLC methods more polar solvents such as water and water mixtures, methanol and acetonitrile maybe used.
