Determination of odorous compounds from water by novel fully automated extraction techniques
First presented at Pittcon 2021
The poster entitled “Determination of odorous compounds from water by novel fully automated extraction techniques” was presented by Markes International at Pittcon, which was held on 8–12 March 2021 as a virtual conference.
Determination of water contaminants at ppt levels
Volatile organic compounds in drinking water, even at trace levels, can have a significant effect on consumer experience. Reliable detection of these compounds is important but is a challenge due to their low odour thresholds, which are typically at low ppt levels.
In this poster, we demonstrate the fully automated sampling and detection of odorants at ppt levels in water using a headspace technique based on the principle of sorptive extraction: high-capacity sorptive extraction using HiSorb™ probes.
