Products Formed in an Electron Capture Detector from Various Gas Chromatographic Solutes
A variety of neutral, volatile, electron-capturing products was found to originate in the electron capture detector from certain pesticides and similiratiy structured analytes, such as the hexachlorocyclohexanes, penta- and tetrachloronitrobenzene, and various polychlorobenzenes. Some of these unexpected products have been tentatively edentified by gas chromatographic retention data. According to these, product patterns arise from the loss of halide and/or nitro groups. These patterns are indicative of the analyte and can potentially be used to confirm peak identity in the lower picogram range, and determine the configuration of isomers. © 1978.
