What is thermal desorption?

 

A guide to the history, principles and applications of thermal desorption for gas chromatography

Analytical thermal desorption (TD) is a sample preparation and introduction technique for gas chromatography (GC) that overcomes the drawbacks of conventional sample preparation techniques, such as solvent extraction, solid-phase micro-extraction, purge-and-trap, and static headspace.
 

What does thermal desorption offer the analytical chemist?

  • Greater sensitivity than conventional sample preparation techniques.
     
  • Applicability to a wider range of compound classes and sample types.
     
  • It is safer and more environmentally-friendly than solvent extraction.
     
  • It is more easily automated and validated.
     
  • TD is compliant with key standard methods.
     

Thermal desorption and its place in the laboratory

All this and key applications of TD are explained simply and clearly in a new e-book, What is thermal desorption? In just 24 pages, this easy-to-read guide explains how TD works, along with important aspects such as sorbent choice and sampling options.

So if you’re a GC user but haven’t considered the impact that thermal desorption could have in your lab, download the e-book to learn more about this powerful technique.
