This work concerns the analysis of model naphthenic acids and authentic naphthenic acids from the tailings ponds of the Athabasca tar sands. A first objective was to compare atmospheric pressure chemical ionization mass spectrometry (APCI-MS) with the previously studied electrospray mass spectrometry (ESI-MS) in this analysis. APCI-MS had a wider range of quantitation than ESI-MS, but its detection limit was poorer and model compounds showed greater variation in calibration sensitivity. A… CONTINUE READING
