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…
