Gas chromatography (GC) is a type of chromatography used for analyzing and separating compounds that can vaporize without decomposition. It is used to test purity of a substance and separating different components in a mixture. Gas chromatography is also used in identification of a compound and preparation of pure compound from a mixture. The forensic science uses GC to analyze crime-scene evidence and biological specimens. The testing of quality of chemical products and measurement of toxic substances is done using GC techniques.
Rise in government investments for chromatography technologies and collaborations of research laboratories & academic institutes propel the growth of the global gas chromatography market.
