Selective Detection in Gas Chromatography by Active Nitrogen-induced Chemiluminescence

Volume 34, Number 4 (Aug. 1980) Page 434-437

Melzer, J.E.; Sutton, D.G.

Previous work has clearly shown that metastable transfer emission spectrometry has useful applications as a general detector for hydrocarbon gas chromatography and as a detector for organometallic compounds. We report here additional progress in determining the characteristics of the system response to HCl catalyzed chemiluminescence from saturated hydrocarbons and to oxygen-containing compounds. The implications in terms of a multipurpose general and selective detector for chromatography are discussed.
