Examinations of the Matrix Isolation Fourier Transform Infrared Spectra of Organic Compounds: Part XVII

Volume 43, Number 8 (Dec. 1989) Page 1424-1427

Coleman, W.M.; Gordon, Bert M.

Qualitative and quantitative analysis of compounds in a complex mixture by gas chromatography/matrix isolation/Fourier transform infrared spectrometry (GC/MI/FT-IR) is described. The carbon-deuterium stretching mode was characterized and used for analysis since it has a unique position in the infrared spectrum. Compounds of varying functionalities were examined over a concentration range from 6 to 50 ng. Linear responses over this mass range were obtained. Flame ionization detection was used for collaborative detection in establishing the linearity of the responses. These results represent the first use of GC/MI/FT-IR for quantitative analysis of compounds in a complex mixture using deuterium-labeled analogues.
