Abstract: In parts 1, 2, 3 and 4 of this series we focused on the selection of stationary phase, column length, ID, and the film thickness. Besides the column specific parameters, there are three non-column specific parameters that impact the separation. These are the type of carrier gas, its linear velocity, and the temperature of the column. Here we look into the effects of temperature on separations.
