Abstract Information :
The determination of aliphatic/aromatic compounds when performing Total Petroleum Hydrocarbon (TPH) analysis is typically a lengthy process – with time-consuming sample fractionation and multiple analyses per sample.
Here we show how the enhanced separation capacity of GCxGC-FID eliminates the need for offline sample fractionation.
Furthermore, a dual-channel configuration can be used to double the sample throughput per instrument - increasing productivity, reducing bench space and lowering installation costs, all while meeting the criteria set out in standard methods (e.g. TPH Criteria Working Group and Massachusetts State).
