  • The heat in the GC instrument separated the molecule into three distinct fragments.
  • The product polymerized while heating in the GC instrument.
  • Different atoms within a molecule travel faster through the column than others travel.
  • The sample was a mixture containing two isomers of the product and some leftover starting material.
