Onsite real-time analysis of fumigants via GC-PID/TCD

ANYL 335 
PAPER TITLE: Onsite real-time analysis of fumigants via GC-PID/TCD 

DIVISION: Division of Analytical Chemistry
SESSION: Advances in Analytical Separations
SESSION TIME: 8:00 AM - 11:45 AM

PRESENTATION FORMAT: Oral DAY & TIME OF PRESENTATION: 9:20am-9:45am 
AUTHORS (FIRST NAME, LAST NAME): John N. Driscoll2 , Jennifer L. Maclachlan1 INSTITUTIONS (ALL): 1. PID Analyzers, LLC, Centerville, MA, United States. 2. PID Analyzers, LLC, Sandwich, MA, United States. ABSTRACT BODY: Abstract: Although many different chemicals have been used as fumigants for agricultural products and soils, we have focused on some of the more common fumigants that can be detected by gas chromtaography (GC) using a photoionization detector (PID). These include methyl bromide, 1,3 dichloropropene, phosphine and methyl isothiocyanate (MITC). Deaths from fumigants have occurred in ships, grain elevators, soil fumigation, green houses, and even residential sites. A field method for detecting common fumigants i…

Abstract: 
There are many situations today that require rapid identification of air toxics in the field. These include spills, train derailments, significant chemical plant leaks, hazardous waste cleanups and more. The equipment must be light weight, battery operated, rugged, sensitive (ppb) or even sub ppb (with a concentrator), and most of all easy to use by first responders. The photoionization det…

Abstract: 
Cutter and others (1) described Hydride Generation (HG) with Gas Chromatography (GC)/Photoionization Detector (PID) with a liquid nitrogen concentrator more than twenty-five years ago for part per billion (ppb) detection of metalloids such as As, Sb and Se, in natural waters. These early papers on HG/GC/PID (1 )…
