TG-GC/MS: Thermogravimetric - Gas Chromatography/Mass Spectrometry

Although TG-MS allows real-time monitoring, it can be confusing due to overlapping events and higher mass ions obscuring those of lower mass. By adding gas chromatography (GC) to the system, these events can be cleanly separated and very low levels of impurities detected.

Heating a sample on the TGA causes a sample to release volatile materials or generate combustion components as it burns. These gases are then transferred to the GC, where the components can be collected on a trapping media, in a gas sampling loop, or deposited on the head of a column. The sample can then be run by GC to separate the material, and the peaks identified by the MS. Because of its ability to detect very low levels of material in complex mixtures, the TG-GC/MS is a powerful tool for quality control, safety, and product development.

TG-IR: Thermogravimetric - Infrared

The combination of a Thermogravimetric Analyzer (TGA) with an Infrared Spectrometer (TG-IR) is the most common type of Evolved Gas Analysis (EGA) in use today. By heating a sample on the TGA, a sample will release volatile materials or generate combustion components as it burns. These gases are then transferred to the IR cell, where the components can be identified. Because of its ability to detect functional groups, IR analysis allows greater understanding of the processes seen in the TGA. The PerkinElmer TL8000 transfer line is a state-of-the-art system for TG-IR. Unlike simpler systems that simply move the gas to the TGA, the TL8000 is designed to make sure every component evolved in the TGA is transported to the IR.

TG-IR-GC/MS: Thermogravimetric - Infrared - Gas Chromatography/Mass Spectrometry

Hyphenating TG-IR-GC/MS is a powerful approach for analysis of an unknown mixture to determine its primary components and identify additives or contaminants. This information may be needed, for example, to evaluate a competitor’s product or to determine compliance with regulations. The PerkinElmer TL9000 transfer line is used to allow TG-IR-GC/MS analysis on a sample by moving the off gases to the FT-IR and GC/MS after their evolution in the TGA. It acts as the interface between a TGA or STA, an FT-IR like the Frontier or Spectrum Two FT-IR, and a Mass Spectrometer or GC/MS, such as the Clarus SQ 8.

    Cavity-enhanced Absorption Spectroscopy for Trace Gas Detection with Frontier

    Cavity-enhanced absorption spectroscopy (CEAS) has similarities with the better known cavity ringdown technique (CRDS) which measures the signal decay as a laser pulse emerges through one of the mirrors after successive reflections. By measuring the increase in the rate of decay caused by an absorbing species, CRDS can measure ppb concentrations of small molecules. The ringdown technique has typically been applied to small molecules where the wavelength of a NIR laser source can be tuned across very narrow individual lines of the spectra. In contrast this report describes CEAS using a broadband source applied to larger molecules where the spectra are broader.

    Diamond ATR and Calibration Transfer for Biodiesel-Blend Analysis by ASTM D7371

    Biodiesel is seldom used neat (B100), typically being blended with fossil diesel at ratios from 5% v/v (B5) to 30% v/v (B30). Verifying the FAME content of diesel-fuel blends is an important aspect of quality control and auditing of blending and distribution operations. Because FAME has a strong infrared absorption at 1745 cm-1 due to the ester carbonyl group, infrared spectroscopy is an excellent technique for this analysis, and there are EN and ASTM® standard test methods describing the procedure

  • Application Note

    Analysis of Polluted Soil by TG-IR Technique

    One of the most challenging analytical problems with increasing importance is the possibility to analyze soil polluted by the dispersion of organic fluids which sometimes features particularly high boiling points. The current techniques used solvent extraction and headspace chromatographic analysis, have shown their limits. Solvent extraction needs time consuming sample preparation. Headspace makes it impossible to heat the sample at temperatures exceeding 200 °C, which risks not being able to identify the heaviest fractions of the polluting agents.

  • Application Note

    Pharmaceutical Compounds are Analyzed in Half the Time by Simultaneous TGA-DSC

    In the “Early Drug Discovery Phase” of pharmaceutical development when there is a minimum amount of synthesized drug candidate, quick thermal analysis using a small amount of sample is the norm. The sample amount could be less than 3 mg. Because of the rush to identify possible drug candidates, analytical answers must be given within the day. The STA 6000 with its sensitivity of 0.1 µg allows minimum sample material to obtain reproducible results in half the time.

    High Resolution Characterization of Pharmaceutical Polymorphs Using Power Compensation DSC

    Many pharmaceutical materials exhibit polymorphism, which means that, depending upon the given processing conditions, the crystalline form may exist in two or more states. The crystalline states or forms exhibit different levels of thermodynamic stabilities and an unstable form can melt at a temperature significantly less than the melting point of the thermodynamically stable form. Depending upon the conditions used to generate the crystalline form(s), the drug may exhibit one or more unstable, polymorphic crystalline states.

    A Comparison of Standard Test Methods for Determining FAME in Diesel by Infrared Spectroscopy

    As the importance of sustainable energy production increases, so too does the global commitment to using fuels from renewable biological sources. Biodiesel is one such renewable fuel. Consisting of fatty acids of methyl esters (FAME), it is produced from plant crops by transesterification – a reaction in which natural triglycerides are cleaved and reacted with methanol, producing glycerol and FAME. Rapeseed, soy, sunflower, palm and jatropha are just part of the range of feedstocks used globally in the production of biodiesel.
