Gas chromatography has an important role to play in monitoring mankind's emissions into the atmosphere and exploring the natural balance of biogenically released materials. New developments in injection technology and adsorbent materials will allow a greater number of species to be determined automatically in field locations. Development in column technology to reduce the effect of moisture on chromatographic separation and broaden the range of volatilities that may be separated on a given column will also bring significant benefits. Improvements in detector sensitivities and reliability (notably bench-top MS) will determine which of the many available detectors become standard in the next generation of atmospheric instruments.

Solar Panel Basics

Global warming is a huge problem which will significantly affect every country in the world. Many people all over the world are trying to do whatever they can to help combat the effects of global warming. One of the ways that people can fight global warming is to reduce their dependence on non-renewable energy sources like oil and petroleum based products.
