Abstract

Macro molecules and high boiling compounds are not readily analyzed at the ordinary temperatures used in gas chromatography. Some of the high boiling compounds can be made more volatile by forming some low boiling derivative. The only other recourse is to degrade the material by pyrolysis and separate the decomposition products with a gas chromatograph.
