Analysis of Semivolatile Organic Compounds Using Hydrogen Carrier Gas and the Agilent HydroInert Source by Gas Chromatography/Mass Spectrometry

Sponsored Content

Gas chromatography/mass spectrometry (GC/MS) is integral to the analysis of semivolatile organic compounds (SVOCs) in environmental matrices. Recent pressure on the helium (He) supply has required organizations to actively investigate hydrogen (H2 ) carrier gas, but most GC/MS analyses have reduced sensitivity and hydrogenation or dechlorination in the sources. The Agilent HydroInert source retains the ability to analyze a wide calibration range (0.1 to 100 µg/mL) and meet the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) method 8270 calibration criteria when using H2 carrier gas.
