What range of carrier gases is possible?

Discussion created by memfarmer on Oct 27, 2018

I'm wondering just how exotic I could get with GC (or GC-MS) carrier gases. For example, could I run pure methane, or carbon monoxide or carbon dioxide, or syngas (CO + H2)? I'm much less concerned with chromatographic efficiency than I am with things like filament lifetime, or on the GC, how the FID detector would respond. Thanks!
