    GC - Retention times v.s. polarity of column

    We did a GC experiment using a homologous series of alcohols and ketones on two different columns, one being polar and one non polar. I'm having a little trouble determining which is which. The ketone standards are 2-hexanone, 2-octanone, 2-decanone, and 2-dodecanone. The alcohol standards are...
