Ever changing consumer demands and constant competitive pressure necessitate the development and rapidcommercialization of innovative products for household and personal care. While researchers, formulators and marketspecialists strive to deliver these products, regulatory bodies around the world enact increasingly stringent legislation onrelated environmental, health and safety issues. In their efforts to comply with regulatory requirements, support innovationand meet business objectives, researchers within these organizations seek out the most effective analyticalinstrumentation and methods – a dynamic that in part drives the advancement of laboratory technologies. Of the manytechniques utilized in the modern day laboratory, high performance liquid chromatography (HPLC), gas chromatography(GC) and mass spectrometry (MS) are among the most common. ...
