Abstract

The elution of an inert gas peak from capillary columns is directly measured with a flame-ionisation detector operating at reduced hydrogen and air flow rates. Under the conditions tested the inert gases give negative signals. No significant differences in “dead times” obtained from different inert gases are found. Experimental values deviate from the measured methane elution time and even more from “dead times” calculated from the logplot of n-alkanes.
