Applying the Technology of the TurboMatrix 650 ATD to the Analysis of Liquid Accelerants in Arson Investigation

Fire investigation involves many different types of analyses – from crime scene investigation through analytical chemistry. If a fire’s ignition is suspicious, the analysis will include gas chromatography (GC) as a means to detect the presence of a liquid accelerant; this analysis may include mass spectrometry (MS) as the initial detector or as confirmatory analysis.

Determination of Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs) in Wallpapers Using ATD-GCMS

Wallpaper is widely used throughout the world as an interior design choice that offers bright colors, rich designs and durability, all at an affordable price. Vinyl wallpaper has emerged as an especially durable choice over paper and non-woven varieties of wallpaper, however, its manufacturing poses many environmental concerns. When manufacturing wallpaper, a large amount of organic solvent is utilized in the treatment and printing processes. As a result, high levels of volatile organic compounds (VOCs) can be present in the product, which pose an inhalation risk to humans. To identify potential levels of VOCs in wallpaper samples, a method was undertaken, targeting 35 volatile organic compounds using a PerkinElmer TurboMatrix™ 650 ATD and PerkinElmer Clarus® SQ8 GC/MS, with results and methodology introduced in this study.

Using Thermal Desorption – Gas Chromatography for the detection of fire accelants in Arson Residues

The extraction and concentration of the residual fire accelerant components from fire residue and their introduction into a gas chromatograph may be performed in a number of ways but normally using liquid or thermal desorption. In this note, a method is described that uses thermal desorption – gas chromatographic (TD-GC) instrumentation to perform the extraction and analysis automatically.

Pace LCGC Article Reprint

A new, single method to replace the two-method approach using United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Methods TO-15 and TO-13A for the analysis of both volatile organic compounds (VOC) and semivolatile organic compounds (SVOC) in air. The study presents evidence that these components can be determined using one analytical method that follows EPA TO-17 capturing the volatile compounds in addition to recovering the heaviest components, such as benzo[ghi]perylene. The investigation also takes a look at some of the 50 additional compounds that are expected to be added to this list in the near future.



TurboMatrix Thermal Desorbers for Gas Chromatography

For laboratories analyzing everything from air quality to flavors and fragrances, thermal desorption offers a faster, easier, more cost-efficient way to prepare samples for GC or GC/MS analysis. Ideal for the trace-level measurement of volatile organic compounds (VOCs)—as well as most semi-volatile chemicals—thermal desorption lets you avoid time-consuming, manual, solvent-based sample preparation in favor of a simple, streamlined, automated approach. It also delivers the added benefits of superior throughput and enhanced sensitivity.

Collaboration Helps Improve How Pace Analytical Services Collects and Analyzes Air Samples

PerkinElmer’s new desorption tube is now used on a routine basis and it is changing the way Pace and its customers conduct environmental testing. In fact, productivity and customer satisfaction at Pace Labs has significantly improved thanks to this single method approach. The benefits of the TO-17 thermal desorption tubes are that they use no solvent, rendering it a more environmentally friendly method.



Ensuring Compliance with VDA 278 Regulations

The coveted and well-recognized “new car smell” is often seen as an indicator of the age and cleanliness of a vehicle. However, what many consumers do not know is that this smell is a result of the off-gassing of volatile organic compounds (VOCs) found in the vehicle’s leather, plastics and textiles. The Verband der Automobilindustrie (VDA), or German Association of the Automotive Industry, has developed a guidance document (VDA 278) outlining recommended testing to ensure levels of VOCs in vehicles do not pose a risk to human health.

This guidebook offers a comprehensive overview of the analytical techniques utilized in support of VDA 278 regulations, utilizing a PerkinElmer Clarus® SQ8 GC/MS and TurboMatrix ATD for the quantification of VOC emissions in vehicle interiors.
