About this talk

The first activity in the Year of Education is a series of free educational webinars, run in conjunction by separationsNOW and Chromedia.

This first webinar is intended for persons who: * Use chromatography and would like to revisit the basics of GC. * Have a little knowledge and would like to learn more! Some knowledge of general and organic chemistry is assumed. The webinar should prove useful to technicians, students, graduate students, PhDs and even professors planning to work with GC. Topics to be discussed are: * Definitions of GC * Separation principles * Advantages and limitations of GC * Basic instrumental components of a GC * Capillary columns * Three detectors: FID,TCD and ECD

The Year of Education came about through discussions between 3 professors who actively teach chromatography: * Professor Harold McNair, Virginia Tech, Blacksburg, USA * Professor Pat Sandra, University of Ghent, Belgium * Professor Peter Schoenmakers, University of Amsterdam, Netherlands "The first activity is a free webinar on gas chromatography, followed by a number of other activities, more webinars, online short courses, tutorials, instruction videos and much more! 2010 will be a year full of activities. Many experts will be involved, from university and industry. We believe all chromatographers should actively take part in this: in teaching, telling their employees and students to take courses. This is a chance they should not miss!"
