A method for hyphenating surface enhanced Raman scattering (SERS) and thin-layer chromatography (TLC) is presented that employs silver-polymer nanocomposites as an interface. Through the process of conformal blotting, analytes are transferred from TLC plates to nanocomposite films before being imaged via SERS. A procedure leading to maximum blotting(More)
A high temperature diaphragm valve-based two-dimensional (2D) gas chromatography (GC×GC) with time-of-flight mass spectrometry (TOFMS) instrument, with the valve mounted directly in the GC oven, is demonstrated with separations up to 325°C. Use of the diaphragm valve allowed for the use of uncoupled carrier gas flows for 1D (first column dimension) and 2D(More)
The chemical composition and several physical properties of RP-1 fuels were studied using comprehensive two-dimensional (2D) gas chromatography (GC×GC) coupled with flame ionization detection (FID). A "reversed column" GC×GC configuration was implemented with a RTX-wax column on the first dimension ((1)D), and a RTX-1 as the second dimension ((2)D).(More)
A high-temperature diaphragm valve-based comprehensive two-dimensional gas chromatography (GC×GC) instrument is demonstrated which readily allows separations up to 325°C. Previously, diaphragm valve-based GC×GC was limited to 175°C if the valve was mounted in the oven, or limited to 265°C if the valve was faced mounted on the outside of the oven. A new(More)
Partial modulation via a pulsed flow valve for comprehensive two-dimensional (2D) gas chromatography (GC × GC) is demonstrated, producing narrow peak widths, 2Wb, on the secondary separation dimension, 2D, coupled with short modulation periods, PM, thus producing a high peak capacity on the 2D dimension, 2nc. The GC × GC modulator is a pulse flow valve that(More)
