Troubleshooting in GCxGC

Abstract In all the literature published so far, very impressive contour and colour plots have been shown demonstrating the power of GC×GC. These plots not only show the high separation power of GC×GC at enhanced sensitivities, but also exhibit the clustering and grouping of chemically related compounds, a valuable help in identification of separated components. Nevertheless, it is important not to overlook the peak shapes of individual peaks in GC×GC chromatograms. As is the case in 1D-GC, observing peak shapes in the chromatogram can help in understanding the separation phenomena under consideration, in optimizing the separation and in troubleshooting.
