    Abstract

    A number of methods for the determination of chloral hydrate and trichloroethanol in biological tissue have been described [1–5]. The most recent of these procedures, that of Jain et al [5], involved direct injection of an aqueous sample on to a gas chromatographic (GC) column. Both chloral hydrate and trichloroethanol exhibited relatively broad peaks with the column used and the separation of the chloral hydrate and water was not always satisfactory.
