In part one of this series, we learned why water vapor is bad for volatile organic compound (VOC) analysis. In part two, we will explore ways we can optimize moisture control in the Purge and Trap (P&T) system.

Analyzing volatile organic compounds (VOCs) is an essential part of environmental monitoring, flavor and fragrance analysis, and analysis in the pharmaceutical and petrochemical industries. Gas Chromatograph (GC) columns and detectors, namely Mass Spectrometers (MS), do not perform well in the presence of water. Before the sample is introduced to the GC, it must become a vapor.
For this reason, there are many samples, such as
