  • used in environmental toxins.
These are some of the fields where GC can be used for the separation of volatile mixtures.
  • It can also be used for the volatile samples such as human breathe, blood, saliva and other secretions which contains organic volatiles and can be easily analyzed with Gas Chromatography.
This GC is very much useful in studying of health of human as well as environment. 
  • Air samples can also be analyzed with GC.
  • Air quality control units also use Gas Chromatography in order to determine the components of a given air sample.
