Improving characterisation of essential oils – New article published
Monday, 19 September 2016 at 11:37:AM
The September 2016 issue of LCGC: The Column features an article by Markes’ analysts that investigates the use of GC×GC–TOF MS to characterise essential oils.
The study uses flow-modulation to allow analysis an enhanced range
of volatiles, and employs novel Tandem Ionisation technology to simultaneously
generate 70 eV mass spectra for regular library-matching, and soft-EI spectra
for improved isomer speciation.
This approach ensures that confident identification is achieved
for these complex mixtures – which is particularly important for quality
control within the fragrance industry.
