Frank J Yang, John V Hinshaw Jr: Solute focusing technique for on-column injection in capillary gas chromatography. Varian Associates, Stanley Z Cole, Keiichi Nishimura, October 16, 1984: US04477266 (25 worldwide citation)

A solute focusing method is applied to the on-column injection of a liquid sample in gas chromatography so that relatively large sample sizes can be used without causing intolerable column flooding. The injection zone of the column is kept originally at a temperature below the solvent boiling point ...

John C Hu: Method for determining formulation and chemical structure of materials by improved pyrolysis gas chromatography. The Boeing Company, Christensen O Connor Johnson & Kindness, July 3, 1979: US04159894 (24 worldwide citation)

A material containing both volatile and nonvolatile components, such as a compounded high polymer, is analyzed using pyrolysis gas chromatography by directly inserting a sample into a sample injection chamber in contact with a flowing carrier gas stream upstream of a chromatographic column. Prior to ...

Junior E Sandoval, Joseph J Pesek: Silicon hydride surface intermediates for chemical separations apparatus. Majestic Parsons Siebert & Hsue, May 21, 1991: US05017540 (24 worldwide citation)

The present invention produces very stable, covalently bonded separation substrates for separations application such as liquid and gas chromatography as well as capillary zone electrophoresis. An intermediate substrate is prepared which has hydride species on the substrate surface. These hydrides pr ...

J Fred Kolhouse, John C Deutsch, Vincent Guay, James P Ounsworth: Non-invasive evaluation of maldigestion and malaborption. Greenlee and Winner, April 9, 1996: US05506147 (24 worldwide citation)

A bentiromide test for evaluation of pancreatic function is provided which includes the steps of administering a stable, non-radioactive isotope of PABA along with the bentiromide and measuring the natural PABA and PABA isotope by gas chromatography mass spectroscopy (GC/MS). In a preferred embodime ...

Jose F Manfredi, Jose E De Mendonca: Compact separating system with snap-in columns. Jose Felix Manfredi, Beveridge DeGrandi & Weilacher, April 21, 1992: US05105652 (24 worldwide citation)

A fluid separation system applicable to gas chromatography includes a separating column in the form of a coiled tube in a thermally insulated enclosure. The ends of the coiled tube are connected by snap-action couplings to the outlet of an injector and the inlet of a detector which generates an elec ...

Timothy J Gardner, Ronald P Manginelli, Patrick R Lewis, Gregory C Frye Mason, Chris Colburn: Microcombustor. Sandia Corporation, Kevin W Bieg, September 7, 2004: US06786716 (24 worldwide citation)

A microcombustor comprises a microhotplate and a catalyst for sustained combustion on the microscale. The microhotplate has very low heat capacity and thermal conductivity that mitigate large heat losses arising from large surface-to-volume ratios typical of the microdomain. The heated catalyst enab ...
