Improved quantification of sulfur compounds in the atmosphere by hyphenated GC-FPD-PID

246th ACS National Meeting, Indianapolis, IN Document ID: 15413, Paper# 251 Program Area:ENVR Division of Environmental Chemistry
Symposium Title:(ENVR014p) Air Monitoring INSTITUTIONS1. PID Analyzers, LLC, Sandwich, MA, 02563, United States AUTHORS         1. Jack N.

Title: Improved quantitation of sulfur compounds in the atmosphere by hyphenated GC-FPD-PID Abstract Body: The flame photometric detector (FPD) for gas chromatography has a high selectivity for sulfur compared to carbon. When a S compound is burned in a hydrogen rich flame, the excited species S2* is formed with the emission of blue light at 394 nm when it returns to the ground state. The response for various sulfur compounds then is proportional to the square root of the sulfur compound and varies considerably with s…
