Hi Dana,


It depends very much on what type of derivatives you are preparing.

Meanwhile, Corr et al. RCM 2007, 3759-3771 is a good starting point.

Subject: [ISOGEOCHEM] Opinion on GC column for running amino acids?


Hi All,


I was just wondering if those of you that have experience running amino acids on a GC/IRMS could share your column preference. We are trying to decide between a DB-5, DB-35, and a VF-23MS. Thank you very much in advance for your response!!!
