A novel three-step analytical method was developed which enables the simultaneous detection and identification of multifunctional oxygenated products resulting from the reaction of α-pinene with ozone. The method consists of the following steps: conversion of carbonyl groups to methyloximes using methyloxyamine, conversion of carboxylic acids to methyl esters using trimethylsilyldiazomethane (TMSD), and conversion of alcohols to trimethylsilyl ethers using N,O-bis(trimethylsilyl… CONTINUE READING
