THC , CO and CO2  by GC-FID

I want to check Total hydrocarbon by FID without identifying the hydrocarbon species . Agilent suggest to give me DB-1 15m, 0.32mm, 0.10u as a non polar column to elute all HC without separation as one peak .


  • Does this column will work for Total hydrocarbon as one peak ?
  • If i install methanizer with this column CO and CO2 will eluted or not and what will be the retention time ?
