Persinger, Jared D.; Hoops, Geoffrey, C.; Samide, Michael J.
Journal of Chemical Education, v81 n8 p1169 Aug 2004
A simple, qualitative experiment is developed for implementation, where the gas chromatography-mass spectrometry (GC-MS) plays an important role, into the laboratory curriculum of a chemistry course designed for nonscience majors. This laboratory experiment is well suited for the students as it helps them to determine the validity of their hypotheses.
