Note that the distorted peak shape of 3,3-dimethylpentane is an example of "solvent effect." Solvent effect occurs when the analytical starting temperature is much lower than the boiling point of the solvent. When that occurs, the solvent peak affects the chromatography of compounds eluting near it. Peak shape for the compounds eluting prior to the solvent peak are usually distorted, while compounds eluting after the solvent peak will have somewhat increased retention.
