Use of Diffusive Samplers with TD–GC Analysis for Monitoring VOCs in Ambient Air
14 September 2016

This application note reviews indoor and outdoor air monitoring of volatile organic compounds (VOCs) using tube type diffusive samplers and thermal desorption (TD)–GC analysis. Specific attention is paid to general sampling/analytical procedures, concentration/detection limits, applicable analyte ranges, minimizing artefacts, quality assurance and method limitations.
