Developing and optimising tube-based thermal desorption methods
Application Note 021
Thermal desorption simplifies the introduction of volatile and semi-volatile organic compounds from a wide range of sample matrices directly into a GC or GC–MS.
Because it is versatile, highly sensitive and fully automated, TD has become the preferred methodology for applications in environmental monitoring, material emissions and flavour/fragrance profiling.
This application note discusses each stage of the TD process, key parameters for optimisation, and tools for simplifying method validation.
