The development of a disposable gas chromatography microcolumn

Jacqueline M. Rankin, Kenneth S. Suslick

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


The first molded gas chromatography (GC) microcolumn is described. This microcolumn consists of a single microtextured thermoset polymer composite which acts as both the structural material and the stationary phase. The resultant microcolumn is inexpensive and has been coupled to a disposable colorimetric sensor array, creating a disposable column-detector unit and demonstrating a proof of concept for a disposable GC microcolumn.
