AS201: High-Speed Formaldehyde Analysis for the Process-Line and Laboratory: Sift-MS

Martin Perkins

25th October 2019


This Application Note demonstrates the optimum method for high-speed formaldehyde analysis using SIFT-MS.

Reliable, sensitive, and selective analysis of chemically diverse volatile organic compounds (VOCs) and inorganic gases cannot be achieved using traditional chromatographic techniques unless multiple analyses are invoked.

A more recent analytical technique – Selected Ion Flow Tube Mass Spectrometry (SIFT-MS)1,2 – overcomes this limitation by eliminating chromatography and using highly controlled chemical ionization to achieve broad-spectrum, direct analysis of air and headspace.

This Application Note demonstrates the optimum method for high-speed formaldehyde analysis using SIFT-MS.
