Detection of specific compounds

Sampling air spiked with oxathiane (A) and divinylsulfoxide (B) at 10ppm for 4s through a 2m GC column at 3ml/min and isothermal at 60°C. Y-axis sensor output (mV) and X-axis time (s).
Sensor response at different concentrations of divinyl sulfoxide and 1,4-oxathiane at 50°C and 60°C GC temperature levels when sampling for 4 seconds. Y-axis sensor output (mV) and X-axis concentration (ppb).
