A rapid determination of benzene, toluene, ethylbenzene and the three xylene isomers (BTEX), including a nearly baseline separation of the xylene isomers in environmental samples within 1 min has been carried out using low-pressure gas chromatography-ion trap mass spectrometry (LP-GC-IT-MS). In order to evaluate the different parameters which may influence… CONTINUE READING
