Gas chromatography (GC) combined with mass spectrometry (MS) is widely used for assessment of the odour-impact of wines. It is true that new advances in GC and MS contribute to our improved understanding of the chemical composition of beverages. However the degree of complexity of a sample s constituents necessitates that the highest possible resolution should be applied to the separation task, usually supported by the enabling spectroscopic technologies of mass spectrometry and other methods. This allows GC to provide a high level confirmation for separated sompounds. Without adequate multidimensional (MD) separation approaches, and this includes comprehensive 2D GC [1]. We have also developed a switchable MDGC-GCxGC system to deliver simultaneous GC.GC and MDGC [2].
