Can Analyte Protectants and Matrix Help Improve Peak Shapes?

Recently, in our continued research on low-pressure gas chromatography (LPGC), we encountered peak splitting and distorted shapes for some early eluting pesticides. Temperature had already been optimized, so we explored the impact of adding analyte protectants vs. matrix on peak shape. Here’s what we found.
