    Chemical separation on a GC instrument

    This content was COPIED from BrainMass.com - View the original, and get the already-completed solution here!

    Given: 1. GC instrument 2. polysiloxane column 3. 1mM solution of each of the following compunds in methanol.

    Compounds divided into 3 separate groups:

    1. Carboxylic Acid:
    a. benzoic acid b. Phthalic acid c. Toluic acid

    2. Amino:
    a. aniline b. 4-aminotoluene c. ortho-
    pheylenediamine

    3. Amino Carboxylic Acids:
    a. 4-aminobenzoic acid b. 2-aminobenzoic acid c.
    4-amino-2-methylbenzoic acid

    I need a suggestion on the best temperature parameters to get good separation for each separate group. Any ideas?
