More precise information on the quality of enantiomer separation is given by the resolution RS. The resolution is calculated according to Eq. 2.27 from the base
12 For the calculation of the separation factor a reduced retention times t' are used. This is because the reduced retention time t' describes the time which the analyte stays during GC measurement (in between injection and detection) in the liquid polymer, i.e., the stationary phase. The hold-up time tM corresponds to the time of the analyte in the gas phase (in the carrier gas).
