Application Note: Ozone Precursor Analysis Using a Thermal Desorption-GC System
2 October 2012

This white paper describes a method to collect and measure C2 to C12 automatically in the field, without the use of liquid cryogen. This system has been updated to support the use of thermal desorption (TD) systems, the PerkinElmer® TurboMatrix™ Thermal Desorbers. With quantitation limits below 0.1 ppb (FID) and the capability of sampling for 40 minutes of every hour, the system meets the requirements of this exacting method.
