GC-IRMS: δ13C Analysis of PAHs in Soil and Sediment Samples using High Resolution GC Coupled with Isotope Ratio MS
Thermo Fisher Scientific, Bremen, Germany
Gas chromatography coupled with Isotope Ratio MS (GC-IRMS) has entered into widespread applications like environmental studies and forensics enabling compound specific isotope analysis (CSIA). Isotopic fingerprints analyzed by GC-IRMS may still provide information where classical GC/MS methods based on compound quantitation cannot. The potential of using CSIA for source differentiation of environmental polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) has already been demonstrated.
