Static Headspace-Gas Chromatography Theory and Practice Bruno Kolb * Leslie S. Ettre Static (equilibrium) headspace-gas chromatography (static HS-GC) offers a reliable, simple, and accurate way to quantitate volatile compounds in liquid and solid matrices. The technique is being used in increasingly more analytical laboratories in a variety of industries because it enables high sample turnaround, automated high-performance GC analysis, and automated and unattended sample clean-up by gas extraction, while avoiding laborious sample preparation. Static Headspace-Gas Chromatography provides the most thorough and current treatment available on this technique. The book covers the theory of headspace sampling as related to selection of the operational parameters, describes quantitative calibration techniques, and presents, and presents detailed methods, all adapted for automation. It includes many examples of proven practical applications-complete with original data-from the most important applications of static HS-GC in environmental analysis, polymers, packaging, pharmaceuticals, and food analysis.

Headspace gas analysis is an analytical technique that has been successfully applied to food flavors for over 20 years but has experienced a resurgence of interest and innovation in recent years. In its truest form, headspace analysis represents the direct collection and analysis of the mixture of vapors in the space immediately above a food or beverage. The technique offers several advantages for workers interested in how a product smells and ultimately tastes. It offers the advantages of speed, simplicity, and, more importantly, represents the aroma profile a consumer is likely to experience just before consuming the product. Since only volatile components are collected, the sample is totally free of nonvolatile residues which commonly plague comparison liquid-liquid extracts of the same product. This is the first book devoted to headspace analysis in foods and beverages in more than 20 years. The publication contains chapters on the basic theory of headspace analysis, as well as the theory and application of newly developed headspace techniques, such as solid phase micro extraction, SPME and electronic noses. New concentrating and desorption techniques are described in addition to a raft of food applications including tomato and citrus juices, alcoholic beverages, baguettes, dairy products, lipids, grill flavoring, baked potato, and meat. Chapters on off-flavors as well as aroma-food matrix interactions are also included. "This is the bible of headspace analysis. If you are involved in, or planning on becoming involved, or want to learn more about, this incredible subject , then buy this book immediately!" – Aubrey Parsons, governing council member, International Union for Food Science and Technology
