What Is A Capillary Column And Types Of Capillary Columns?

A hairlike section for GC is essentially an exceptionally thin tube with the settled stage veneering the interior surface. In stuffed segments the static stage is coated onto the pressing components. A narrow segment contains two or three segments – the tubing and stationary stage.

Melded silica and stainless steel are the head tubing fixings. Additionally there are a lot of stationary stages, for example, high atomic weight, thermally adjusted polymers that are fluids or gels. Be that as it may, the most generally observed stationary stage are polyethylene glycols, polysiloxanes and some modest penetrable components constituted of polymers or zeolites.


In gas chromatography, basically three sorts of hairlike sections are utilized.

Divider Coated Open Tubular (WCOT)

Surface Coated Open Tubular (SCOT)

Melded Silica Open Tubular ( FSOT)

Divider Coated Open Tubular (WCOT)


Here in the inside mass of the hairlike segment is layered and veneered with a fine layer of liquid stationary stage.

Surface Coated Open Tubular (SCOT)

The hairlike tube divider is layered with a thin strata of strong adjust on to which liquid stage is drenched. The partition effectiveness of SCOT sections is higher than WCOT segments because of the improved surface area of the stationary stage layer.

Intertwined Silica Open Tubular (FSOT)

Dividers of slim combined silica tubes are fortified by a polyimide covering. These are pliable and can be turned into curls.

Employments of Capillary Column in GC

Gas Chromatography is an all around utilized investigative strategy as a part of numerous logical research and mechanical labs for quality examination and also acknowledgment and quantitation of composites in a mix. GC is additionally a frequently utilized method as a part of numerous biological and legal labs since it licenses for the presentation of exceptionally little volumes and amounts.

A wide assortment of testers can be examined the length of the mixes are suitably thermally adjusted and normally shaky. In all gas chromatography investigation, the partition of different mixes happens in light of their coordinated effort with the stationary and versatile stages. For example, in straightforward chromatography a dissolvable (water and liquor.) floats over the paper (stationary) streaming the specimen with it.

Rule of Operations

The different mixes which constitute the example will float pretty much drowsily depending, in straightforward terms, on the amount they stick to the paper. The stickier amalgams move all the more unhurriedly in this manner move a littler separation in a stipulated time consequent result being partition.

In gas chromatography the gas is the versatile stage, the section lacquer is the stationary stage and the bubbled component is estranged by to what extent the fundamental mixes take to show up from the other terminal of the segment and stream into the indicator. This is known as the maintenance time.

One can procure segments layered with different stationary stages betting on what sort of mixes one wishes to look at as the kind of stationary segment will manage which mixes ignore it quicker or slower.
