Analysis of Samples from the Gulf of Mexico Oil Spill by GCxGC-TOFMS

The ability to identify the chemical make-up of these incredibly complex samples, including the source oil as well as the changes in composition resulting from weathering and additional chemicals used in response to the spill will be an important tool utilized by those responding to this event. These samples contain components over a wide range of volatilities and functionalities.When analyzed by GCxGCTOFMS, the large number of individual components can be resolved and identified in a single analysis, providing an efficientmeans for the analyst to obtain a large amount of information about the sample with a minim
