a sample consisting of 1-bromopropane and 1-chloropropane isinjected into a gas chromatograph quipped with a nonpolar column.which compound has the shorter retention time? Explaine the answer.
b.if the same sample were run several days later with theconditions as nearly the same as possible, would you expect theretention times to be identical to those obtained the first time?Explain.

  • o Chem -

    a. I would expect the lower molar mass compound to be held up the least.

  • o Chem -

    The more nonpolar compound will have the higher retention time
