Qualitative Methods of GC/MS Analysis: Retention Time and Retention Index

Retention Time and Retention Index

The retention time and the retention index are important parameters in qualitative analysis. These retention parameters will be explained here.

-  Chromatographic Separation

-  Distribution Coefficient

-  Retention Time Parameters

-  Factors Affecting Retention Time

-  Qualitative Analysis by GC

-  Relative Retention

-  Retention Index (Isothermal)

-  Linear Retention Index (LRI)

-  Identification Using LRI
