Comprehensive Two-Dimensional Gas Chromatography (GCxGC)—Time-of-Flight Mass Spectrometry of Metabolic Samples Obtained from the Leaves of a Hybrid Aspen (Populus Tremula) Plant

Ten dried extracts obtained from two different leaves of five hybrid aspen plants were derivatized and analyzed by GCxGC-TOFMS. Samples from the same leaf (leaf 9) and from the same plant (leaves 9 and 20) were compared and contrasted using the automated compare function of the ChromaTOF software. The increased separation obtained by using the GCxGC technique and the additional analytical separation gained by spectral deconvolution resulted in more than 400 peaks being found and identified.
