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.
At the height of the first wave of the COVID-19 pandemic, consumers around the world experienced a supply shortage related to alcohol-based hand sanitizer. As new producers entered the market, and existing manufacturers sought to ramp-up production to meet the growing demand, lower grades of ethanol and isopropanol (IPA) started to appear on the market. To ensure the safety and efficacy of hand sanitizer products, it is recommended that manufacturers test their products to ensure appropriate levels of active ingredients, as well as a means of ensuring label-claim accuracy. This application note outlines a fast, robust and accurate GC-FID solution for the quantification of ethanol and IPA in hand sanitizers for label claim purposes.

Beer is one of the most commonly consumed alcoholic beverages, and thorough and robust analysis of the raw materials used in the brewing process, as well as the finished product, is paramount to ensure consistent product quality and taste. There are a number of potential by-products and spillover products of the beer fermentation process which can potentially negatively impact the beer’s flavors, including vicinal diketone (VDK) compounds 2,3-butanedione (diacetyl) and 2,3-pentanedione, as well as acetaldehyde. Historically, breweries use two separate GCs, or two separate analytical runs in the testing of beers - one for the analysis of VDKs, and another for the analysis of acetaldehyde, which is potentially cost-prohibitive to many breweries. In this application note, an optimized method for the simultaneous analysis of VDK and acetaldehyde in beer in presented, using a PerkinElmer Clarus® 690 GC ECD/FID with a TurboMatrix™ HS-40.

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.

Bioethanol, as defined by the U.S. Department of Energy, is a renewable fuel made from biomasses. It has widespread use in producing gasohol, a blend of alcohol and gasoline, which is utilized as an alternative fuel for cars and other vehicles in various countries. As part of Thailand’s effort in fighting pollution and climate change, there is a gradual national effort to shift the usage of gasoline to gasohol. Volatile congeners, such as C3-C5 mono-alcohols, are undesirable production by-products that can be present within the biofuel. To safeguard consumer confidence, the Thai government has developed regulatory guidelines to ensure the composition and quality of ethanol fuel products. In this application note, a method utilizing a PerkinElmer Clarus® 590 GC/FID for the analysis of samples in support of the Thailand Industrial Standard is presented.
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.

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.
