Analysis of Semivolatile Organic Compounds Using Hydrogen Carrier Gas
Gas chromatography/mass spectrometry (GC/MS) is regarded as the select analytical technique for the analysis of semivolatile organic compounds (SVOCs) in environmental matrices.
Recent pressure on the helium (He) supply has required organizations to actively investigate hydrogen (H2) carrier gas, but most GC/MS analyses have reduced sensitivity and hydrogenation or dechlorination in the sources.

- Prevents hydrogenation and dechlorination of target analytes
- Uses H2 carrier gas while retaining critical functional groups
- Enables continued use of existing He-based mass spectral libraries
