Light Crude Oil Fingerprinting from Six Different Global Regions Using GCxGC-TOFMS with Structural Classifications to Compare Functional Group Differences

The orthogonal separation system used in GCxGC, provides very structured chromatograms that generate distinct bands of analytes grouped by specific chemical characteristics. The comparisons of light crude oil highlight the differences of key functional groups utilizing the Classifications feature available in ChromaTOF software. Major Classification regions such as alkanes, alkenes, alkynes, alcohols, aldehydes, ketones, alkyl-cyclics, indenes, naphthalenes, thiophenes, and PAHs are shown.
