Gas Chromatography: Mass Spectrometry of Chemical Agents and Related Interferents Gas Chromatography: Mass Spectrometry of Chemical Agents and Related Interferents
Work was done to optimize the SPME fiber coating, capillary column dimensions, and GC operating conditions to provide complete analysis within 3 minutes. Since isothermal operation of the GC was a prior requirement, many components in the chromatograms were unresolved. Therefore, a peak de-convolution algorithm was applied to allow for identification and quantitation of poorly resolved and often completely obscured trace components. Details of the instrumentation and optimization of operating conditions are described in this thesis.
