Reference GLC data for the analysis of phenolic compounds as trimethylsilyl derivatives
Journal article, 1977

Comprehensive reference GLC data are given for trimethylsilyl derivatives of about 130 aromatic compounds grouped as phenols and naphthols, alcohols, carboxylic acids, aldehydes and ketones, and chloro compounds. The aldehydes and ketones were analysed as both oxime and O-methyl oxime derivatives. Retention data on methyl and phenyl silicone columns are given as MU values in temperature-programmed analysis. Correlations between structure and retention are interpreted in terms of MU increments of structural elements. Methods for predicting MU values are proposed. Diagrams based on differences in MU between the two silicone phases aid in qualitative analysis. Approximate FID relative molar response values were estimated from the atomic composition of the derivatives.
