Static headspace extraction-gas chromatography (SHE-GC) is one of the most commonly used techniques for the analysis of volatile compounds. It is considered by most to be a mature technique and to an extent this is true: there are many users from outside the traditional chromatography research community developing and publishing SHE-GC methods and there are numerous instruments and devices for SHE-GC commercially available. However, research on new SHE-GC methods continues. In this review, several interesting new developments in SHE-GC are described using examples from the past three years’ literature.
