Abstract
Solid-phase microextraction (SPME) was evaluated for the detection and quantification of the gas-phase dicarbonyls, glyoxal (GLY) and methylglyoxal (MGLY). Additionally, polydimethylsiloxane (PDMS), polydimethylsiloxane/divinylbenzene (PDMS/DVB), and carbowax/divinylbenzene (CW/DVB) fibers were tested to determine the optimum fiber for detection of these species. GLY and MGLY were derivatized with O-(2,3,4,5,6-pentafluorobenzyl)-hydroxylamine hydrochloride (PFBHA), extracted with SPME from headspace or bag chamber and then analyzed by GC/MS. The PDMS/DVB SPME fiber for on-fiber derivatization and subsequent sampling for gas-phase methylglyoxal provided the optimum combination of analytical reproducibility and sensitivity. Linearity of the calibration curve was achieved across a range of 11-222mug/m(3) (4-75ppb).
