Analysis of Permanent Gases by Gas Chromatography Using a Radioactive lonization Type Detector

Article metrics

Abstract

BECAUSE of its high sensitivity, simplicity of operation and stability under changing operating conditions, the radioactive ionization-type detector for gas chromatography is one of the most useful so far developed. This detector is, however, relatively insensitive to the permanent gases. From preliminary experiments it has been found possible to increase this sensitivity greatly by introducing a small continuous bleed of organic vapour into the argon carrier stream.
