A sample of hexane and octane is injected into a gas chromatograph equipped with a nonpolar column. Predict which one will have the shorter retention time.

    So, i was thinking that hexane is less polar so it will come out faster, meaning that it will have a shorter retention time?

    Agreed, it is also the equivalent of a boiling point separation.
