Gas Chromatography (GC In gas chromatography, the components of a sample are dissolved in a solvent and vaporized in order to separate the analytes by distributing the sample between two phases: a stationary phase and a mobile phase) is a normally utilized analytic technique as a part of numerous research and industrial research facilities for quality control and in addition identification and quantitation of components in a mixture Mass spectroscopy is an advanced and powerful technique for qualitative and quantitative analysis. . The flame ionization detector presented here is very easy to construct, extremely sensitive, and readily visible for demonstration purposes. Atomic emission detection (AED) is a sensitive as well as a selective detection technique for gas chromatography (GC) and provides element-specific information the paper focused on Instrumentation, Column, Detector, Application, Advantages and Disadvantages in gas chromatography. Gas chromatography is an analytical tool for the separation of compounds in complex mixtures based on the polarity of compounds. Separation is achieved only for compounds that are volatile or that can be made volatile on derivatization of the compound using derivatizing agents.
