Sampleprep ID:SP002649
Sampleprep Summary:Collected canister samples were transferred to a liquid nitrogen trap through pressure differential. Pressure change between beginning and end of “injection” was measured, allowing calculation of the moles of canister collected air injected. Sample in the trap was then transferred, via heated helium flow, to an Aglient/HP 5972 MSD system (Santa Clara, CA, USA) equipped with a PoraBond Q column (25 m x 0.32 mm x 0.5 μm film thickness) (Restek©, Bellefonte, PN, USA). Targeted samples were analyzed in selected ion monitoring (SIM) mode, and untargeted samples in full scan (SCAN) mode with the mass range of 45-200 amu. The mass spectrometer was operated in electron impact ionization mode with 70 eV ionization energy, and transfer line, ion source, and quadrupole temperatures of 250, 280 and 280, respectively. For details on SIM and significantly altered, identified SCAN compounds, see Table 1. All samples were analysed within 6 days of collection. The oven program for both SIM and SCAN analyses were identical and are as follows: 35 ˚C for 2 min, 10 ˚C/min to 155 ˚C, 1 ˚C/min to 131 ˚C and 25 ˚C/min to 250 with a 5 min 30 second hold. Calibration was performed using standard gases (BOC Specialty Gases, Woking, UK). Linear regression of calibration curves confirmed strong, positive linear relationships between observed compound peak areas and moles of gas injected for each VOC (r2 > 0.9 in all cases). For compounds not purchased in gaseous state (BOC Specialty gases, as above), 1–2 mL of compound in liquid phase was injected neat into butyl sealed Wheaton-style glass vials (100 mL) and allowed to equilibrate for 1 h. 1 mL of headspace air was then removed from neat vial headspace using a gas tight syringe (Trajan, SGE) and injected into the headspace of a second 100 mL butyl sealed Wheaton-style glass vial. This was then repeated, and 1 mL of the 2nd serial dilution vial was injected into the GCMS system with 29 mL of lab air to give ppb concentrations. This was performed for methanethiol (MeSH (SPEXorganics, St Neots, UK)), isoprene (Alfa Aesar, Ward Hill, MA, USA), acetone (Sigma-Aldrich, Burlington, MA, USA), 2- & 3-methyl pentane and n-hexane (Thermo Scientific, Waltham, MA, USA). Reported compounds detected by the GC/-MS were confirmed by matching retention times and mass–charge (m/z) ratios with known standards.
