Gas ChromatographyApplication:EnvironmentalPrimary Focus:ApplicationTitle:A Portable GC/PID for the Analysis of Odorous Sulfur Compounds in Ambient AirKeywords:Air GC Industrial Hygiene Portable Instruments A capillary column gas chromatography method was used for the analysis of sulfur compounds such as hydrogen sulfide, methyl mercaptan, dimethyl sulfide, and dimethyl disulfide in ambient air. The concentration of these sulfur compounds is typically very low (low to sub ppb) in ambient air. Their odor threshold is at the low ppb levels so it is also necessary to make field measurements near odorous sulfur sources such as refineries, pulp and paper mills, etc. because of the hi…

American Chemical Society (ACS) Multidisciplinary Program Planning Group (MPPG)
I've just completed my Chair-Elect duties and have assumed the role of 2018 Chair of The ACS Multidisciplinary Program Planning Group (MPPG). Last week I updated my Linked-In profile to reflect the change and have been delighted to receive so much feedback from my connections about this exciting opportunity to work closely with ACS technical divisions and their representatives. "MPPG identifies and selects national meeting themes to promote collaborative, multidisciplinary, Society-wide programming for ACS National meetings. This multidisciplinary programming reflects the multidisciplinary nature of the modern scientific enterprise, breaks down barriers to collaboration, and provides opportunities for outreach to nascent and existing communities of scientists who are practicing chemistry.
MPPG has representatives from nearly all technical divisions, as well as representatives from programming com…
