Since mineral oil hydrocarbons are difficult to biodegrade, it is very important to control the contamination of environmental samples by MOHs. The analysis of mineral oil hydrocarbons in drinking water, surface water, and waste water is defined by the European standard EN ISO 9377-2, colloquially referred to as H53. The Nexis GC-2030 with OCI-2030 injector enables efficient H53 measurements as short narrow-bore columns can be combined with a retention gap or a simple on-column liner. With the help of...

Breaking the mould with X-ray APCI

Mould species can be detected by identifying their volatile metabolites by GC-MS, but electron ionisation often gives confusing output, with weak or non-existent molecular ions and multiple fragment ions. Scientists from the University of Potsdam and the Technical University of Berlin examined the volatile compounds produced from mould species growing on barley grains by GC-MS with atmospheric-pressure chemical ionisation (APCI) using an X-ray source. 

By taking advantage of ion-exchange chromatography, a team of US scientists has helped vanadium to become a useful chemical proxy for measuring past oxygen levels in the oceans.

Brazilian chemists have combined microchip electrophoresis with capacitively coupled contactless conductivity detection to separate and detect inorganic anions in post‐blast explosive residues.

The Basics of Micro-LC

Thorsten Teutenberg, Terence Hetzel, Denise Loeker, Juri Leonhardt

Apr 3, 2018

thumbnail image: The Basics of Micro-LC

For some time “sustainable processes” has been the phrase on everyone’s lips. As far as analytical labs are concerned there are many possibilities for saving energy or rather for using resources more efficiently. Besides the real “energy guzzlers” such as extractors and safety cabinets, complex analysis apparatus has to be subjected to critical system checks, too.

Selected key technologies of the analytical science industry are discussed by Steve Down with reference to burgeoning application areas and the scope for future improvements.

Ion source pressure plays a significant role in the process of ionization and the subsequent ion transmission inside a mass spectrometer. Pressurizing the ion source to a gas pressure greater than atmospheric pressure is a relatively new approach that aims to further improve the performance of atmospheric pressure ionization sources. A brief review on the development of super-atmospheric pressure ion sources, including high-pressure electrospray, field desorption and superheated ESI, and the strategies to...
