The output of the LC column is a solute dissolved in a solvent, whereas the output of the GC column is a gas and thus is directly compatible. As a first step in LC/MS, the solvent must be vaporized. When vaporized, however, the LC solvent produces a gas volume that is 10-1000 times greater than the carrier gas in GC. Hence, most of the solvent must also be removed. The analytes will elute in the order of decreasing polarity for a reversephase separation: diethyl ether, benzene, n-hexane....
