Abstract: An experimental characterization of the Van der Waals forces involved in volatile organic compounds (VOC) dissolved into stationary phases of gas liquid chromatography (GLC) has been started at the beginning of the seventies. This field has been reactivated from 1994 thanks to a fruitful cooperation between our CNRS team and the group of Ervin Kováts at the Federal Polytechnic School of Lausanne. The applied strategy can be summarized, in the first instance, as the experimental measurement of accurate and superabundant mutual affinities of a limited number of VOC and stationary phases and their processing using an original tool named Multiplicative Matrix Analysis (MMA). Then, in the second stage, the obtained results have been compared with molecular properties well established, as the Van der Waals molecular volume, the refraction index and the polar surface area (PSA), in order to get generalized values for any compound. The present study summarizes the positive results developed in our three last papers on this topic (2013, 2016 and 2018), as well as the attempt to overcome the negative ones using enthalpies of vaporization.
