Environmental Monitoring

Although the monitoring of low-boiling VOCs using conventional GC techniques is straightforward, the latest GC×GC and detector technologies are needed to adequately tackle the analytical challenges posed by semi-volatiles and persistent organic pollutants (POPs) in complex matrices.

Reliable separation and efficient group-type quantitation of volatile petrochemical hydrocarbons

This paper describes the analysis of volatile petrochemical hydrocarbons (VPH) in environmental samples to monitor their fate, the risk to human health and to plan appropriate remediation strategies.
