Gas chromatography/mass spectrometry


Gas chromatography/mass spectrometry
(GCMS)
   A quantitative and qualitative method for the separation and identification of organic materials in complex mixtures or solutions. This method has applications in the examination of drugs, explosives residues, paints, plastics and inks and can be used to analyze material to determine if it is gunpowder.
