Wikipedia Edit-a-thon Workshop—Increase Coverage of Chemists and Chemistry!

Join us for a Wikipedia training and editing session to improve coverage of notable chemists and chemistry topics on Wikipedia. All are welcome, newcomer and veteran alike. Attendees may come and go but instructions will be provided during the first hour. Bring your laptop! Advance registration required. Contact Keith Lindblom in the ACS Office of Public Affairs to reserve your spot at k_lindblom@acs.org or 202-872-6214. Edit-a-thon is Wednesday, Aug.19, 1:30 - 5:30 p.m., Boston Convention & Exhibition Center, Room 102B.

ABSTRACT BODY: 
Abstract: 
The PID Analyzers Model GC312 is a field portable analyzer with an embedded PC that will run for 6 hours on the 12 VDC battery. The internal gas cylinder will operate the GC 312 for 25-30 hours with capillary columns.

The photoionization detector (PID) has been redesigned to reduce the dead volume to 50 μL and improve the sensitivity to by 5-10 fold. The detection limit for benzene has been reduced to < 500 ppt. We felt that additional sensitivity (low ppt) was needed in order to identify other VOC’s in the atmosphe…
