Unknown compound analysis is an important part of science that has been around for many years. To identify a compound, we can use many different tools. Some of these key tools include GC/MS. The process of unknown compound identification (ID) can be grueling, and retention index (RI) has been shown to provide valuable additional and, oftentimes, much-needed orthogonal information. Unfortunately, accurate RI calibration in practice usually requires multiple steps, such as separate external standard (e.g., alkane series) injection and repeated injection whenever the temperature programming changes. To make matters worse, most software tools that come with commercial GC/MS systems are either tedious to use or involve manual steps. This show-and-tell demo will demonstrate an easy and seamless way for GC/MS unknown compound ID by combining spectral library search with automated retention index generation (AutoRI). This could even be accomplished without the need for a separate set of RI calibration standards or a separate injection step. By validating the library search via both forward and reverse search and then eliminating incorrect matches using a graphical RI trend model, we can generate the RI values for all GC peaks in a run automatically with high confidence, as long as there are enough number of compounds that could be confidently identified from the sample run itself. We will show how Auto RI compared to conventional RI using numerous examples, e.g., extractables and leachables (E&L) analysis, flavor and fragrances, and natural products, including essential oils
