Why does a thermal conductivity detector respond to all analytes except the carrier gas? Why isn’t the flame ionization detector universal? 6. An unretained solute passes through a chromatography column in 3.7 min and analyte requires 8.4 min. (a) Find the adjusted retention time and capacity factor for the analyte. (b) The volume of the mobile phase is 1.4 times the volume of the stationary phase. Find the partition coefficient for the analyte. 7. How can you improve the resolution between two closely spaced peaks in gas chromatography?...
