Annotation: The possibilities and limitations of identifying gasoline by gas-liquid chromatography were investigated.
Abstract: According to the results, identification of the refinery is possible for leaded, liquid gasoline samples whereas lot to lot individualization is always possible with liquid, little-weathered or unweathered samples. Highly weathered samples, like fire debris from successful arson, can neither be used for identification of the production plant nor for lot to lot individualization. References. (Publisher abstract)
