About Gas Chromatography Mass Spectrometry

Gass Chromatography Mass Spectrometry can be used to analyze and identify unknown samples, identify trace components in complex mixtures, and to analyze volatile or semi-volatile compounds.

  • Approaches

    GC/MS can be used to identify unknown samples. Quantitative analysis to part-per-billion (ppb) levels can be accomplished.

    GC/MS can identify trace components in complex mixtures. The analytical techniques, used together, can provide a more definitive substance identification and quantification than either the Gas Chromatography or Mass Spectrometry method used separately.

    Gas Chromatography/Mass Spectrometry analysis of volatile or semi-volatile compounds can be achieved using headspace techniques or extraction and liquid injection techniques.
  • Sample Considerations

    Volatile and semi-volatile compounds can be analyzed using this method.

    The sample size can vary but 2 grams is generally sufficient.
