01/11/2021 - Development of a gas-chromatographic method for simultaneous determination of cannabinoids and terpenes in hemp

Over the years, a number of methods for detecting cannabinoids and terpenes in Cannabis plant and related samples have been developed, recognizing the base problem of decarboxylation in gas chromatography. Some methods have proved better than others for cannabinoids, though typically differing methods are used for terpenes. However, could a method clearly detect both at the same time? Zekič and Križman demonstrate their gas chromatography method doing just that in this 2020 article published in Molecules. After introducing their problem, the duo present their method, as an attempt "to find appropriate conditions, mainly in terms of sample preparation, for a simultaneous analysis of both groups of compounds, while keeping the overall experimental and instrumental setups simple." After discussing the method details and results, they conclude that their gas chromatography–flame ionization detection (GC-FID) method "provides a robust tool for simultaneous quantitative analysis of these two chemically different groups of analytes."
