Cyclodextrin, bonded to silica gel and used as a gas-solid chromatographic stationary phase provides a practical and efficient means for separating a wide variety of C1-C7 hydrocarbons at ambient to elevated temperatures. Conditioning the columns at high temperature (300°C) for several hours increased efficiency and resolution. The adsorption of these light hydrocarbons involves a multiple retention mechanism. Evaluation of the columns and an analogous silica gel column with hydrocarbon standards is reported. Capacity factors and chromatograms are presented for these GSC stationary phases.
