Volatile Organic Compounds in Air

Abstract

System performance of the GERSTEL TDS in conjunction with an Agilent GC/MSD system was tested using a 43 component gas calibration mixture which was developed for the Japanese Hazardous Air Pollutants (JHAP) monitoring method. A five point calibration curve was obtained for each compound (2-20 ppb@1L) with an average correlation coefficient of 0.996. Twelve replicate analyses of the mixture, where each component was present at 20 ppb@1L, gave an average percent relative standard deviation (%RSD) of 4.6.
