Combining Fourier transform-ion cyclotron resonance/mass spectrometry analysis and Kendrick plots for silicon speciation and molecular characterization in petroleum products at trace levels.


A new method combining FT-ICR/MS analysis and Kendrick plots for the characterization of silicon species at trace levels in light petroleum products is presented. The method provides efficient instrumental detection limits ranging from 80 ng/kg to 5 μg/kg and reliable mass accuracy lower than 0.50 ppm for model silicon molecules in spiked gasoline.
