Application Note: Light Crude Oil Fingerprinting from Six Different Global Regions Using GCxGCTOFMS with Structural Classifications to Compare Functional Group Differences
7 February 2013

The complex nature of crude oil demands analytical solutions and instrumental methods that will separate and identify the complex chemical profile as well as characterize key chemical functional group class differences between complex samples. This application note compares GCxGC-TOFMS data results of six light crude oil standards from different geographic regions. In addition the advantages of GCxGC-TOFMS to separate, characterize, and classify the chemical composition of light crude oils are presented.
