Dartmouth College, USA
Giorgia Purcaro research activities are focused on the development of innovative and advanced instrumental configurations for multidimensional and comprehensive chromatographic techniques, both LC-GC (and LC×GC) and GC×GC. Regarding the LC-GC (and LC×GC) technique she has studied the potential of different interface (PTV, Y-interface), optimized the conditions to obtain rapid and reliable method for routine control, and she has compared the performance of both interfaces on the same samples. A powerful 5 dimension system (LC-GC×GC-MS/MS) was implemented and optimized to face pressing issue, such as the mineral oil contamination in food. Regarding the GC×GC field, she developed several GC×GC method coupled to both MS and FID, applied to quali-quantitative characterization of complex food samples, also through the application of "omics" approaches. She studies the potential of a novel flow modulator as GC×GC interface, the capabilities of the quadrupole mass spectrometer (MS) for GC×GC detection, and the use of simultaneous dual detection (FID/MS). She has been recently working in the development and optimization of a novel hyphenation involving nano LC and an EI-MS system, obtaining preliminary promising results, published in important peer-reviewed journals.
