Quantifying 13C/12C Values in Acyclic Biomarkers by GC-IRMS
The isotope ratio analysis of hydrocarbons and their precursors (e.g. porphyrins) in ancient depositional environments provides insight into specific conditions of diagenesis. Such kinds of samples typically are very complex mixtures (e.g. crude oil), requiring highly efficient separation and background correction prior to isotope ratio measurement.
