The procedure for calculating linear temperature programmed indices as described in part 1 has been evaluated using five different nonpolar columns, with OV-1 as the stationary phase. For fourty-three different solutes covering five different classes of components, including n-alkanes and alkyl-aromatic compounds, both isothermal and temperature programmed indices were determined. The isothermal information was used to calculate temperature programmed indices. For several linear programmed conditions accuracies better than 0.5 IT-units were usually obtained. The results are compared with published procedures. It is demonstrated that isothermal retention information obtained on one column can be transferred to another column with the same stationary phase but different column dimensions and/or phase ratio. The temperature programmed indices calculated in this way also have an accuracy better than 0.5 IT-u. The temperature accuracy and precision oft he GC-instrumentation used was of the order of 0.1OC. All calculations can be run with a Basic-programmed microcomputer.
