Comprehensive Profiling of Environmental Contaminants
As the condition of our environment is increasingly compromised by pollution, it is imperative that scientists can effectively examine these changes. However, monitoring pollutants can be problematic due to the extensive number of contaminants, continuous change of their relevance in the environment and toxicity at low concentration. Several such contaminants have low molecular weight, are volatile or nonpolar, making analysis by gas chromatography (GC) a more cooperative method than liquid chromatography (LC).
