ABSTRACT
By employing multi-dimension gas chromatography with capillary flow technology in combination with highly selective capillary columns and a pressurized liquid injection system, light oxygenated compounds such as methanol, ethanol, n-propanol, 2-propanol, and n-butanol in the presence of either light hydrocarbon, heavy hydrocarbon, or aromatic matrices can be measured accurately with minimal possibility of a false positive. Using this technique, a detection limit of at least 0.20 ppm (w/w) with a linear correlation coefficient greater than 0.9993 over a range from 0.5 ppm to 600 ppm (w/w) and a relative standard deviation of greater than 2.7% are achieved for the solutes tested. The technique can also be effective for the measurement of other classes of oxygenated compounds such as ethers, aldehydes, and ketones. Another added benefit for the implementation of capillary flow technology is the capability to conduct column back-flushing, where heavier, undesired solutes in a sample can be back-flushed from the chromatographic system to improve system cleanliness and sample throughput.
