Featured Application: Paraquat and Diquat on Raptor HILIC-Si - LC-MS/MS Analysis of Paraquat and Diquat without Ion-Pairing Reagents

LC-MS/MS analysis of paraquat and diquat herbicides is an important tool for protecting human and environmental health. However, the ion-pairing reagents that are commonly used to improve retention, resolution, and peak shape have a negative impact on sensitivity and can contaminate the system necessitating frequent cleaning. The LC-MS/MS analysis of paraquat and diquat presented here provides complete separation and good peak response for both target analytes in a fast, 7-minute gradient run without the use of troublesome ion pairing reagents.


Analysis of Trace Oxygenates in Petroleum-Contaminated Wastewater, Using Purge-and-Trap GC-MS (U.S. EPA Methods 5030B & 8260)

Determination of oxygenates in a gasoline-water matrix is difficult because analytes such as MTBE and TBA coelute on many columns and share GC-MS identification ions. We developed a sensitive, accurate analysis using an Rtx-VMS column and optimized conditions.

Storage Stability of 66 Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs) in Silicon-Lined Air Canisters for 30 Days

The recoveries of 66 volatile organic compounds (VOCs) typically analyzed as part of the EPA Method TO-15 were evaluated for two commercially available silicon-lined (SL) air canisters. For the majority of the 66 VOCs, there were no appreciable differences in recoveries and stabilities between the canisters for both dry and humid conditions over 30 days of storage. Acrolein, dibromochloromethane, and bromoform were the only three compounds that appear to be unstable in both SL canister types; however, only under the humid (93% RH) condition.


Rapid Determination of TO-15 Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs) in Air

The efficacy of using a Nutech preconcentrator and a 30 m analytical column for VOC analysis of air samples according to Method TO-15 was evaluated. Results demonstrate that method criteria were easily met and in much faster analysis times than typical methods based on 60 m columns.


Helium, Hydrogen, or Nitrogen—The Choice is Yours: Unique Rtx-CLPesticides Column Set Provides Optimal Results for Organochlorine Pesticides GC-Micro-ECD Analysis Using Any Carrier Gas

Using an Rtx-CLPesticides column set is the best strategy for labs considering alternate carrier gases as a way to reduce helium consumption. These columns have a unique selectivity and produce faster results than competitor columns when using either helium or hydrogen. In addition, only Rtx-CLPesticides columns can be used with nitrogen, which give labs the freedom to choose the carrier gas option that is best for them.


Combined Determination of 1,4-Dioxane and Nitrosamine Contaminants in Drinking Water - Using a Single SPE Cartridge and Concurrent Solvent Recondensation–Large Volume Splitless Injection (CSR-LVSI) with EI GC-MS

Typically, 1,4-dioxane and nitrosamines are analyzed in drinking water following separate extraction and analysis procedures, such as Methods 521 and 522. However, here we present a combined method that uses large volume splitless injection and GC-MS (SIM) to meet low part-per-trillion detection limits for these compounds in a fraction of the time required when running separate methods.


Accurately Quantify PAHs Down to 5 pg On-Column - GC/MS SIM Analysis with the Rxi-5Sil MS Column

Semivolatiles methods, such as EPA Method 8270, place stringent demands on gas chromatography (GC) columns. Here we demonstrate the performance of Rxi-5Sil MS columns for semivolatiles analysis in terms of bleed, efficiency, and activity. Excellent sensitivity and resolution are seen, even for difficult PAHs such as benzo(b)fluoranthene & benzo(k)fluoranthene, and indeno(1,2,3-cd)pyrene and dibenzo(a,h)anthracene. Both basic and acidic compounds show good response even at low levels.


Featured Application: Carbamate Pesticides on an Ultra Carbamate LC Column - Analyze Carbamate Pesticides in a Fraction of the Time and Boost Productivity

Carbamate pesticides can be analyzed much faster on an Ultra Carbamate LC column than on a C18 column. Whether using UV, fluorescence, or LC-MS detection, labs can achieve accurate carbamate determinations in just 5–10 minutes using an Ultra Carbamate column and certified reference materials from Restek.


Featured Application: Fast Analysis of Bisphenol A on a Raptor Biphenyl LC Column - 4-Minute Bisphenol A (BPA) Analysis Increases Sample Throughput

A Raptor Biphenyl column is a better choice for BPA analysis than a conventional C18 column. On a Raptor Biphenyl column, narrow, symmetrical bisphenol A peaks elute in less than 2 minutes, providing a fast and selective means to isolate and quantitate bisphenol A by LC-MS/MS.


Featured Application: Polycyclic Aromatic Hydrocarbons (PAHs) on a Pinnacle II PAH HPLC Column - Fast Analysis of Polycyclic Aromatic Hydrocarbons (PAHs) by HPLC-UV

Pinnacle II PAH columns were developed by Restek as an alternative to C18 columns specifically for the analysis of PAHs by HPLC. These reliable columns provide baseline resolution of key PAHs in a fast ~15 minute analysis without the expense of UHPLC equipment.


Half the Column, Same Chromatogram: Maintain Resolution of BDE 49 and BDE 71 with Proper Method Translation After Trimming an Rtx-1614 Column for Maintenance

Column trimming can extend GC column lifetime when analyzing polybrominated diphenyl ethers (PBDEs); however, the method must be adapted to the shorter column length in order to maintain separation of critical congeners. Here we demonstrate that with proper method translation an Rtx-1614 GC column can be trimmed nearly in half and still meet resolution requirements for BDE 49 and BDE 71.


Fingerprinting Crude Oils and Tarballs using Biomarkers and Comprehensive Two-Dimensional Gas Chromatography
