This book details fundamental principles, instrumentation of gas chromatography-mass spectrometry (GC-MS), and industrial, environmental, pharmaceutical, clinical, toxicological, forensic, and food-related applications, revealing findings from the laboratories of 40 contributing scientists from around the world using GC-MS in practice.

  • Describes upstream and downstream applications of GC-MS in the petroleum industry!
  • Identifies chlorinated compounds in the environment with quadrupole ion-trap technology and high-resolution sector instruments.

Covering sample pretreatment, analyte derivatization, gas chromatographic separation, and mass spectrometric approaches for obtaining the best possible results, Current Practice of Gas Chromatography-Mass Spectrometry examines:

  • the use of high-volume injection and online solid-phase extraction combined with GC-MS to detect microcontaminants in water samples
  • GC-MS in occupational and environmental health assessment with biological monitoring of 1-nitropyrene and solid-phase microextraction in studies of on-the-job exposure to chemicals
  • automated sample pretreatment procedures for rapid GC-MS of drugs and multidimensional detection strategies for anesthetics
  • steroid profiling for a variety of diseases and screening inborn errors in metabolism
  • the analysis and detection of toxicological substances, addictive drugs, explosives, flavors and fragrances, veterinary hormones, monoterpenes, and sesquiterpenes with GC-MS and more!

With over 1200 references, drawings, equations, tables, and photographs, Current Practice of Gas Chromatography-Mass Spectrometry is a superb reference for analytical chemists; chromatographers and mass spectrometrists; operators, researchers, and research managers involved in GC-MS; environmental and biopharmaceutical chemists, biochemists, and biotechnologists; in-house training courses and professional seminars on GC-MS or analytical mass spectrometry; and upper-level undergraduate and graduate students in these disciplines.
