Choosing which chromatography column to install is perhaps the most impactful decision a chromatographer routinely makes. Since the separation of compounds by GC is governed by a molecule’s partitioning properties between the carrier gas and the column’s stationary phase, the careful selection of which column to use not only impacts chromatographic performance, but sample throughput and capacity as well.
