The analysis of volatile emissions from diverse synthetic and natural materials is important to a wide range of industries, such as the pharmaceutical, food, and automotive industries. While traditional chromatograpy can provide the required sensitivity, the drawback is that these techniques are too slow for process-line monitoring or high-throughput analysis. Furthermore, chromatography struggles with analysis of small polar compounds, such as formaldehyde, ammonia and hydrogen sulfide. There is clearly an industry need for an analysis technique that is fast, sensitive, and can deal with chromatographically challenging compounds.

Selected ion flow tube mass spectrometry (SIFT-MS) is a rapid direct MS technique, which provides comprehensive and high-throughput characterization of volatile compounds. The innovative sample ionization used in SIFT-MS enables analysis of headspace and gas samples with a throughput in excess of 100 samples per hour using an automated set-up. In this webcast, we will discuss the principles of the technique and show examples of its application in:

  • Residual monomer analysis in polymers
  • Residual solvent analysis in packaging
  • Emissions from natural materials
  • High-efficiency multiple headspace extraction (MHE) for determination of absolute concentrations in products
