Abstract Information :

In processes producing propylene, trace level carbonyl sulfide (COS) acts as a poison to commercial polymerization catalysts, resulting in deactivation and costly process downtime. The PAC SeNse Chemiluminescence Detector is the most advanced GC Detector available for the selective determination of sulfur containing compounds in hydrocarbon matrices. Typical data will be presented for the analysis of carbonyl sulfide in propylene by Gas Chromatography and chemiluminescence detection.
