Question: a you are given a cleanedup methanol extract from a...

Question details

A) You are given a cleaned-up methanol extract from a biological sample to analyze from a suspected higher molecular weight alcohol animal poisoning. Describe the chromatography system, instrument type, and the starting operational conditions you would use in an attempt to identify the unknown alcohol.

B) You are also given another methanol extract from a biological blood sample to analyze for elevated levels of a cholesterol like compound that could have come from the person ingesting dietary supplements. Describe the chromatography system, instrument type, and the starting operational conditions you would use in an attempt to identify the unknown compound. Be very specific in the type of Gas chromatography or Liquid chromatography method, injection type, column type, mobile and stationary phase information, and detection type. (10 pts)

***Please be very good at instrumentation of analytical methods if answering this question. The available options of analysis are LC or GC with MS as a detector. Talk about injection types like split, splitless, etc and why those conditions were chosen.
