Automated, Rapid And Reliable Determination Of Dissolved Gases In Water By Static Headspace – Gas Chromatography
Thermo Fisher Scientific

Purpose: Exploring the possibility to perform a quantitative determination of dissolved gases in water in a reliable and accurate way. Methods: The quantification of dissolved gases is performed by building a calibration curve spiking blank water samples with increasing quantities of saturated water followed by headspace sampling and GC/ FID analysis. Results: The results show good correlation factors and limit of quantification lower than 10ppb for the four gas analyzed.
GC-MS Comparison of Lavindin Grosso Oil Obtained by Steam Distillation and SFE
Miami University Middletown

Oil was extracted from Lavindin Grosso using steam distillation and using supercritical fluid extraction (SFE). Multiple analyses of the same extract demonstrated repeatability of the analytical method. The variability between batches of distillate bracketed the composition obtained by SFE. The differences among the oils could be attributed more to where the lavender was grown than to the extraction method.
