Ethyl carbamate is a naturally occurring ester formed in fermented foodstuffs such as bread and in beverages such as wine. The agencies also suggest steps to minimize formation of ethyl carbamate, such as minimizing exposure to heat and light and limiting storage time of finished product. The method selected for this work is the AOAC International 944.07 method for Gas Chromatography and Mass Spectrometry detection (GC/MS). The method calls for calibration of ethyl carbamate with a propyl carbamate internal standard. As part of this experiment, butyl carbamate was investigated as an alternative internal standard.
Solvent such as supercritical CO2, butane, propane, other hydrocarbons, water, or alcohol are used to extract out the cannabinoids and terpenes from the plant material. In some cases, the solvent and impurities from the solvent remain in the extracted material. This study will shows the analysis of residual solvents using pressure-balanced headspace (HS) sample introduction coupled with Gas Chromatography/Mass Spectrometry (GC/MS). Unambiguous separation of all compounds is obtained while maximizing sample throughput.
Trimethylamine (TMA) is a volatile organic compound known to be a major contributor to malodor pollution. Created in a gaseous form as a result of the manufacture, use and disposal of materials utilized in sewage treatment plants, the low odor threshold of TMA results in regular poor air quality complaints of residents living near treatment plants.
In this application note, a method for the analysis of TMA in the exhaust gas of a station pollution source is presented. Utilizing a PerkinElmer TurboMatrix™ HS-40 sampler and a Clarus® GC with nitrogen phosphorus detector (NPD), TMA is detected with MDLs well below the standards developed by US and Chinese regulatory bodies.
Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs) have been identified as a major source of air pollution, and as such, have been regulated as a cause of both primary and secondary pollution, such as photochemistry smog. The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (U.S. EPA) regulates 189 hazardous air pollutants under the Clean Air Act (CAA) of 1990, 51% of which are VOCs. The CAA offers further regulation and guidance for the monitoring of VOCs and ozone pollution in ambient air with a list of 57 ozone-precursor target analytes monitored under U.S. EPA’s Technical Assistance Document for Sampling and Analysis of Ozone Precursors, EPA/600-R-98/161 (1998)1, as well as the requirement of states to establish Photochemical Assessment Monitoring Stations (PAMS). This paper details an application for VOC monitoring with an extended target compound list utilizing a PerkinElmer TurboMatrix™ 300 TD and PerkinElmer Clarus® 580 GC. The application note demonstrates results with good repeatability, linearity and detection limits.
The European Union directives assist the member states to define the activities to be programmed and the objectives to be achieved. In this framework, the chemical analysis of the water system is the main activity to preserve the healthiness of the waterways through monitoring and detection of substances that are harmful to the environment and to the health of citizens.
This application shows this framework could be achieved with GC/MS analysis.
Malodor pollution in water has emerged as an increasingly worrisome consequence of continued worldwide urbanization and industrialization. Volatile organic sulfur compounds (VOSCs), such as dimethyl disulfide (DMDS) and dimethyl trisulfide (DMTS), have been identified as a primary contributor to malodor pollution in water, and are considered a serious safety and environmental threat, rendering drinking water sources unpalatable. In this study, a method for the determination of DMDS and DMTS in water was established using a PerkinElmer Clarus® GC/FPD with the TurboMatrix™ HS-40 Trap. The methodology offers a simple, sensitive and efficient means of detecting DMDS and DMTS in water.
EPA 8015C is a gas chromatographic method used to establish concentrations of a variety of non-halogenated volatile organic compounds, semivolatile organic compounds, and petroleum hydrocarbons.

Residual solvents are used in the manufacture of active pharmaceutical ingredients (APIs), excipients, or in preparation of drug products, and are not removed during the purification processes. Residual solvents are one of the three main impurities in pharmaceutical materials; the other two are organic and inorganic impurities. Residual solvents do not provide any therapeutic benefit and should be removed to the extent possible, fulfilling quality-based requirements as per International Conference on Harmonization (ICH) guidelines – this is one of the standards to control the quality and the purity of the pharmaceutical substances, excipients, or drug products.
This paper will demonstrate the analysis of all three classes of residual solvents by pressure-balanced headspace sample introduction and GC-FID analysis. In addition to a discussion of the instrumental technique, the choice of the diluent will also be studied; two diluents will be used throughout.
The use of Food Contact Materials (FCM) can potentially be detrimental to human health. In the PerkinElmer quantification of Phthalate Leaching from FCMs, using the Clarus GC/MS, we explore how to quantify FCMs.
Ethylene oxide (EO) is a highly reactive, toxic and flammable gas which can act as an irritant to humans at room temperature. Since the 1950s, EO has been utilized for the sterilization of medical instruments that cannot be exposed to moisture or high temperatures, including those made of polymers, plastics or those containing electronic components. Although the EO method ensures medical instruments can be sterilized without the deleterious effects of high-temperature sterilization, potentially dangerous side effects are possible, namely owing to the hazardous nature of the chemical.
In this application note, a rapid analytical method for the determination of EO in medical supplies was established using a PerkinElmer Clarus® GC/FID with the TurboMatrix™ HS-40. Empower® software was utilized throughout the entire experiment. This method demonstrates results with high efficiency, good linearity, sensitivity and repeatability for EO analysis.

In today’s budget-constrained, yet highly competitive laboratory environments, the samples you’re being asked to analyze - whether food, pharmaceutical, petrochemical, or environmental - are increasingly difficult. But for some labs, having a dedicated GC for every application isn’t an option. For them, a GC that can do it all isn’t just a nice-to have, it’s a necessity.
Innovation is the lifeblood of industrial polymer development – the push to improve materials or develop new ones infuses new life into the industry from R&D through to QA/QC. Manufacturers are continually challenged to ensure effective quality control and streamline processes while meeting stringent standards. Increasingly they must design for recycling and/or reuse in an ever more waste-adverse economy, keep a watchful eye on costs and stay ahead of the competition.

The analysis of C2 to C12 volatile organic ozone-precursor compounds can present a serious technical challenge to the analytical chemist. Low concentrations in the atmosphere coupled with the need to monitor frequently to assess diurnal variations means that a preconcentration step of the sample before analysis by thermal desorption is required. While the samples can be collected in the field and returned to the laboratory, remote, field-based analysis is desired which allows reduced data turnaround time, minimizes sample collection hardware and permits the presence or absence of VOCs to be correlated with meteorological data. In the field, low-molecular-weight C2 VOCs can be trapped on solid adsorbents if those adsorbents are cryogenically cooled.
