High Sensitivity Gas Chromatograph System
A Single System for a Variety Applications
The Tracera GC system is based on the GC-2010 Plus platform and includes a Barrier Discharge Ionization Detector. Making it a nearly universal Gas Chromatography tool.
Analysis of Reaction Products in Artificial Photosynthesis Research
Artificial photosynthesis is a technique to capture energy from the sun and store it chemically. It is expected to become the 4th renewable energy source along with photovoltaic, solar thermal, and biomass. Shown below is a result of simultaneous analysis of CO and H2, which are generated in a photochemical-carbon dioxide reduction reaction.
The production amount of CO is rapidly increased, then slows as the reaction nears completion.
The Tracera GC system allows simultaneous, high-sensitivity measurement of CO and H2 using a single detector and carrier gas.
Analysis of Impurities in Ethylene
Ethylene is an important chemical used as a starting material in the production of many polymers. The purity of ethylene feedstock is essential to know. Below is an example of the analysis of impurities in ethylene.
H2(30 ppm), CO(2 ppm), and CH4(30 ppm) are detected as trace impurities.
The Tracera GC system allows simultaneous, high-sensitivity measurement of the permanent gases and light hydrocarbon impurities using a single detector and carrier gas.
Analysis of Lithium Ion Battery Gas
To evaluate the deterioration of lithium ion batteries, analysis of the gas produced during decay is required. The gas components are ideal for analysis by the Tracera system. Shown below is an example of the decay gas of lithium ion batteries.
The decay gas is extracted from a lithium ion battery, diluted, then introduced into the gas chromatograph.
The Tracera GC system allows simultaneous, high-sensitivity measurement of the lithium ion decay gases using a single detector and carrier gas.
