Abstract
A Mettler vacuum recording thermoanalyzer interfaced with a Finnigan Model 1050 quadrupole mass spectrometer is described and several applications using the system are given. A schematic diagram of the system is given showing that the interfacing is accomplished with only a piece of tubing eight inches long. A block diagram and photograph show the system interfaced with a computer. The advantages and disadvantages of the system are briefly discussed. Capabilities of the system are given in examples with analyses of Green River oil shale, volcanic ash, decomposition of ethylenediaminecobalt (III) complexes and the pentamine and hexammine complexes, the thermal decomposition of metal sulfates and analyses of gases resulting from decomposing automobile tires to recover fuel.
