Volatile organic compounds (VOCs) have been recognized as a primary source of air pollution, and are known photochemical reaction precursors which facilitate the production of tropospheric, or ground-level, ozone. Ground-level ozone can have significant impacts on human health, and contributes to climate change throughout the world. VOC emissions from stationary sources, such as ducts, stacks and exhaust funnels in factories, refineries and mines, have been identified as significant contributors to air pollution and ground-level ozone formation. In this paper, a qualitative and quantitative method for the analysis of 24 polar and nonpolar VOCs was established using a PerkinElmer TurboMatrix™ ATD and a PerkinElmer Clarus® GC/MS with electron ionization (EI) source. The method is simple, sensitive and efficient to comply with regulatory requirements.
Ethyl carbamate is a naturally occurring ester formed in fermented foodstuffs such as bread and in beverages such as wine. The agencies also suggest steps to minimize formation of ethyl carbamate, such as minimizing exposure to heat and light and limiting storage time of finished product. The method selected for this work is the AOAC International 944.07 method for Gas Chromatography and Mass Spectrometry detection (GC/MS). The method calls for calibration of ethyl carbamate with a propyl carbamate internal standard. As part of this experiment, butyl carbamate was investigated as an alternative internal standard.
The use of Food Contact Materials (FCM) can potentially be detrimental to human health. In the PerkinElmer quantification of Phthalate Leaching from FCMs, using the Clarus GC/MS, we explore how to quantify FCMs.
The European Union directives assist the member states to define the activities to be programmed and the objectives to be achieved. In this framework, the chemical analysis of the water system is the main activity to preserve the healthiness of the waterways through monitoring and detection of substances that are harmful to the environment and to the health of citizens.
This application shows this framework could be achieved with GC/MS analysis.
PerkinElmer Clarus® SQ 8 GC/MS systems are designed around the cutting-edge Clarifi™ detector. Engineered using the latest electron multiplier technology, the Clarifi detector provides the greatest sensitivity (signal-to-noise) and the longest operational lifetime. Ions are efficiently converted into an electronic signal that is then processed by the TurboMass™ Data System to generate mass spectra. The unique design of the detector eliminates extraneous chemical and electrical noise while amplifying the analyte signal.

Chlorofluorocarbons (CFCs) and hydrochlorofluorocarbons (HCFCs) are fully or partially halogenated paraffin hydrocarbons. CFCs, in the form of polyether polyol mixtures, have been widely used as blowing agents in the manufacture of rigid polyurethane foams (PU) used as insulation products. Owing to the contribution to ozone depletion, the manufacturing and use of CFCs and HCFCs have been phased out under the Montreal Protocol (1987), however, recent studies have found that atmospheric levels of CFCs are significantly higher than expected, suggesting that production and use of CFCs are still on-going. In this study, trichlorofluoromethane (CFC-11), chlorodifuoromethane (HCFC-22) and dichlorofluoroethane (HCFC-141b) in a polyether polyol matrix are investigated using a PerkinElmer Clarus® GC/MS with a TurboMatrix™ HS-40. Instrument method parameters utilized in the study are presented herein, with detailed results demonstrating superior precision, linearity, sensitivity and recovery.
Volatile organic compounds (VOCs) are a series of compounds with boiling points from 50 to 250 degrees centigrade and are widely used as industrial chemicals/ solvents. Low concentrations of VOCs can have a significant impact on human health, as many are regarded as highly toxic, refractory and carcinogenic. The detection and determination of VOCs in the environment is of the upmost importance for both human and environmental health.
Customer complaints of odors within a new car are rising with the increasing number of new car buyers. Although odors can be subjective, it is now well known that the new car smell is the result of chemicals emitted from the in-vehicle interior components such as the dashboard, interior panels, seat coverings, flooring materials, and so on. This application note describes a method for the automotive industry that provides a qualitative analysis and the olfactory character of each component using the TD-GC/MS-Olfactory Port.
The EU Registration, Evaluation, Authorisation and Restriction of Chemicals (REACH) regulation was adopted in 2006 with the aim of protecting human and environmental health, along with the competitiveness of the chemical industry within the European Economic Area. The regulation places responsibility for chemical product evaluation and compliance on manufactures and importers, as opposed to the government.
In this application note, a method utilizing a PerkinElmer Clarus® GC/MS for the analysis of 4,4’-Methylenebis(2,6-di-tert-butylphenol), also known as Ethyl 702, is described. The method fulfills the REACH requirement by using the ammonia adduct ion to confirm the compound molecular weight. Improved analytical results were obtained using a mass flow control (MFC) mechanism for the regulation of the CI reagent gas flow.
This method outlines the analysis of volatile organic compounds in a variety of solid waste matrices including various air sampling trapping media, ground and surface water, soils, and sediments among others.

This work highlights that screening, testing or real-time detection can be utilized to detect melamine-adulterated milk in a supply chain and that by determining where the sampling is taking place, who is carrying out the measurement and whether the testing is to meet regulation, will define which technology to use.
Crude Palm Oil (CPO) is a raw material used in the production of margarine and other vegetable oil based food products. CPO is traded and there are quality specifications based on free fatty acids (FFAs) as well as moisture and impurities. Margarine manufacturers also want to assess the CPO’s ‘fitness for refining’ which is measured by the Deterioration of Bleachability Index (DOBI). A DOBI index of less than 1.8 indicates a poor quality oil; a DOBI index > 3 indicates a high quality oil.

BTEX is a grouping of structurally similar volatile organic compounds including benzene, toluene, ethyl benzene and the three xylene isomers. These compounds are known pollutants and are typically found near petroleum production and storage sites. BTEX are regulated toxic compounds while benzene is also an EPA target carcinogen. The investigation of these compounds, especially in drinking water at low levels, is critical to protect public health. This application note focuses on exceeding the current EPA detection limit requirement for BTEX while meeting and/or exceeding all other criteria in EPA method 524.2 for these analytes.
This study will demonstrate how the GC instrumental parameters are optimized so that VOCs, in addition to semi-volatile organic compounds (SVOCs), can be analyzed on the same instrumentation enabling enhanced throughput and laboratory efficiency. It will also discuss the number of samples required by each refinery depending on its size, in addition to the distribution of sampling sites around the refinery.
