Interpretation of Gas Chromatographic Spectra in Routine Analysis of Exhaust Hydrocarbons.

NTIS: PB 214 237 :19 pages
Experimental work has been done to refine and to confirm an analytical procedure by which gas-liquid chromatographic (glc) spectra are interpreted from retention time data alone. The rationale of this spectra interpretation technique involves whether or not a given peak invariably represents the same component or component mixture; if not, what factors influence changes in peak identifications. To answer these questions, peak-identification procedures, based mainly on the use of subtractive columns, were developed and applied to interpret glc spectra of several exhaust (and fuel) samples. Work done under an agreement with the Bureau of Air Pollution Sciences, Environmental Protection Agency.
