Application Note: Applying Thermal Desorption (TD)–GC–MS and Microchamber Sampling for Identifying VOCs and SVOCs in Emissions-Testing Applications
8 February 2017

This application note demonstrates the analysis of volatile and semi-volatile organic compounds (VOCs and SVOCs) from a variety of materials using a microchamber sampling device and TD–GC–MS, a technique with multiple industrial applications. In this articles Markes International’s Micro-Chamber/Thermal ExtractorTM’s is used to collect samples of vapour and perform thermal desorption (TD)-GC-MS analysis. In-house product emission testing enables manufacturers to routinely check product quality, product development and brand comparison.
