Selective GC Detectors and their role in environmental analysis is often overlooked with the heavy reliance on mass spec detectors which is why PID Analyzers, LLC organized this group of manufacturers of GC Detectors, GC columns and users of GCs to educate this new generation of chromatographers on selective detector technologies and methods. Contributors were deliberately selected to present an overview of selective GC detectors appropriate for a wide range of environmental analysis. Description and data will include: Fixed gases and hydrocarbons with a FarUltraviolet Absorbance detector, sulfur and nitrogen detection by chemiluminescence (SCD) and (NCD), pesticide residue analysis and detection of halogenated compounds by ECD, novel application of the principles of Thermoionic Surface Ionization (TID) and FlameIonization (FID) and lastly, inert & fixed gases using micro thermal conductivity detector (TCD) and Helium Ionization Detector (HID).
