RATIONALE Effective δ(18) O determinations of organic compounds have been made using high-temperature pyrolysis (HTP) units that employ molybdenum (Mo) foil as an oxidation barrier instead of glassy carbon. In this investigation we evaluated the performance of a Mo-lined reactor during δ(18) O determinations from benzoic acid using a standard high… CONTINUE READING
