Pyrolysis-gas chromatography/mass spectrometry analyses of biological particulates collected during recent space shuttle missions.


Biological particulates collected on air filters during shuttle missions (STS-40 and STS-42) were identified using pyrolysis-gas chromatography/mass spectrometry (Py-GC/MS). A method was developed for identifying the atmospheric particles and their sources through the analysis of standard materials and the selection of "marker" compounds specific to the… (More)
