Real-Time Speciation of Ethylbenzene from the Xylenes Using SIFT-MS

Direct mass spectrometry (DMS) techniques struggle to speciate ethylbenzene from the xylene isomers, yet increasingly regulators are imposing different emission and exposure limits for these compounds. This application note describes a significant breakthrough for DMS, because selected ion flow tube mass spectrometry (SIFT-MS) readily achieves direct, real-time speciation of the xylenes from ethylbenzene.

Rapid Analysis of Organochlorine Compounds in Water using Automated SIFT-MS

Combining the power of direct analysis using selected ion flow tube mass spectrometry (SIFTMS) and GERSTEL automation, headspace analysis of chlorinated volatile organic compounds (VOCs) in water is greatly simplified. This application note demonstrates the linearity and and repeatability achievable with automated SIFT-MS. The sample throughput achievable with SIFTMS is at least three-fold higher than traditional purge-and-trap gas chromatography methods.

Rapid Residual Solvent Analysis Validation Of An Alternative Procedure For USP Method <467> Using SIFT-MS

This study demonstrates that SIFT-MS provides an alternative procedure to USP<467>.  Because SIFT-MS is inherently a rapid test technique (all sample components are simultaneously analyzed in about one minute per sample), this validated procedure can be used in organizations that require high-throughput testing, providing 17-fold daily throughput increase over GC-FID.

Real-Time Speciation of Ethylbenzene from the Xylenes Using SIFT-MS

Direct mass spectrometry (DMS) techniques invariably struggle to speciate ethylbenzene from the xylene isomers, yet increasingly regulators are imposing different emission and exposure limits for these compounds. This application note describes a significant breakthrough for DMS, because selected ion flow tube mass spectrometry (SIFT-MS) can readily achieve direct, realtime speciation of the xylenes from ethylbenzene.
