Analysis of Grape Fruit Oil by Mulitiple Detectors - FID, FTD, and FPD

Analysis of Grape Fruit Oil by Mulitiple Detectors - FID, FTD, and FPD

By combining selective GC detectors, a detector splitting system improves identification accuracy and enables simultaneous quantitative analysis. The following example is a grape fruit oil analysis utilizing FID (Flame Ionization Detector), FTD (Flame Thermionic Detector), and FPD (Flame Photometric Detector) at the same time.

Grape Fruit Oil Analysis Simultaneously with FID FTD FPD (gc detectors)

FTD selectively detects nitrogen and phosphorus compounds, and FPD detects sulfur and phosphorus compounds. The ingredient of peak B appears to be a phosphorus compound, since both FTD and FPD detect it. Peaks A and C are detected by FPD only; therefore, these appear to be sulfur compounds. As this example shows, this detector splitting system allows simultaneous quantitative trace amount analysis by combining multiple GC selective detectors.
