Overview

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. For sample preparation, coupling the GC/MS with a Thermal Desorber provides additional benefits, the main one being the elimination of solvents, reducing associated hazards and costs - no solvents to buy, no waste to dispose of, no spills to prevent.

Also, as with all forensic analyses, the data generated in arson analysis must be legally defensible - this creates the need for duplicate sample analysis as well as sample archival.

Application Note

Characterizing of Emissions from Open Burning of Electronic Waste using TG-GC-MS System

The objective of this study is to demonstrate the application of an analytical technique that integrates thermal analysis with gas chromatography and mass spectroscopy to identify and quantify toxic compounds emitted during the burning of electronics waste at different oxidizing conditions. The study simulates open burning practices that often accompany undeveloped e-waste recycling operations, and to provide information about exposure risks to these from emissions.
