The complementary role of thermal desorption alongside other sample introduction technologies for GC

Application Note 060

Thermal desorption is one of the most versatile sampling preparation/introduction technologies available for gas chromatography (GC).

It plays a wide-ranging and complementary role to other GC sampling methods such as equilibrium headspace and purge-and-trap, and is often combined with such techniques during the final transfer of compounds to the analyser.

This application note provides a brief review of each of the main GC ‘front-end’ technologies and summarises the advantages, limitations and applications of each.
