THE DATING OF WRITING INKS THROUGH 2-PHENOXYETHANOL USING GAS CHROMATOGRAPHY-MASS SPECTROMETRY, ADVANTAGES, INTERPRETATION, AND LIMITATIONS

Chromatography is the name give to analytical chemistry techniques that involve separating components of a mixture. There are two phases to chromatography methods: a mobile phase and a stationary phase. The mobile phase can be a gas or a liquid while the stationary phase can be a liquid or solid. During the separation, the mobile phase moves past the stationary phase. The separation of a mixture is based on a component’s interaction with each of the phases. Components that interact more with the mobile phase will move more quickly. Components that interact more with the stationary phase will be slowed.
