  • Hello anyone got an idea why i always get a double peak on the 2nd dimension when cutting a single peak on the first dimension using a deans switch? also the peak area (the double peak in total) is lower than the peak area of the peak i cut out ? (2 FIDs) i cant figure out where i went wrong when setting it up

  • really changing the switching time doesnt help at all, i can send the whole chromatogram to the 2nd column (setting the dean switch to on for the entire run) and it will only result in a chromatogram full of double peaks on the 2nd dimension...... im thinking theres a dead volume in the dean switch....
