Degradation of alpha-pinene on Tenax during sample storage: effects of daylight radiation and temperature.


The behavior of alpha-pinene sampled on adsorption cartridges filled with Tenax TA has been investigated in relation to different storage conditions, focusing on daylight radiation and temperature. After sampling, the respective cartridges containing the terpene were placed in sunlight on the windowsill for up to 1 month. Corresponding samples have been… (More)
