Analysis of Light Crude Oil Using Gas Chromatography—High Resolution Time-of-Flight Mass Spectrometry

This study demonstrates the utility of high performance time-of-flight mass spectrometry for the comprehensive analysis of light crude oil samples. In addition to the increased resolution, the Pegasus GC-HRT provides the ability to acquire full mass range spectra without sacrificing sensitivity. This is beneficial for detecting not only target compounds (e.g., paraffins, aromatics, PAHs, etc.), but also heteroatomic contaminants (e.g, dibenzothiophene, dibenzofuran, 9H-xanthene).
