Comprehensive vehicle emissions testing using thermal desorption (TD) and GC×GC–TOF MS
28 Sep 2022
With the increased uptake of hybrid and electric vehicles, non-exhaust emissions are now of growing environmental concern. In this webinar, our guest speaker, Dr Nick Molden, (Emissions Analytics), will demonstrate the use of thermal desorption (TD) for versatile sampling of emissions from exhausts, vehicle interiors and tyres. When coupled with GC×GC–TOF MS this provides improved chemical fingerprinting of emissions to enhance our understanding of how vehicles may impact the environment and human health.
Key learning objectives
- See how GC×GC–TOF MS can gain insight into volatile emissions from car trim materials, such as plastic, textiles and rubber.
- Find out how characterising tyre composition can help us to understand the sources of microplastics being observed in air, water and soil samples.
- Learn how to future-proof your lab in case of expansion of the target lists of regulated compounds.
Who should attend?
- GC-MS analysts, lab supervisors and directors
