  • Abstract Curie Point-pyrolysis-gas chromatography (CuPy-GC) and Curie Point-pyrolusis-gas chromatography-mass spectrometry (CuPy-GC-MS) were applied to characterize the macromolecular content of the suspended particles in the surface waters and benthic nepheloid layer of the Rhone delta. The chromatogram of the pyrolysate of the Rhone River particles revealed a low pyrolysis yield from the riverine material in which polysaccharides and lipid-derived substances prevailed. The absence of… CONTINUE READING
