Infrared sensor, based on attenuated total reflection phenomenon, for the detection of chlorinated hydrocarbons (CHCs) represents a big advantage compared to chromatographic and mass spectroscopic techniques since it is a one step detector. Pre-concentration and separation take place in the polymer film with simultaneous identification of pollutants by the infrared beam. The analysis is rapid, sample does not require any initial preparation, and can be easily performed in the field. The main… CONTINUE READING
