A sample of pyrolytic oil (condenser oil – project B-469) was vacuum distilled at 30°C/14.5mm - 188°C/19.0mm.
The distillate (25-1) was studied by gas chromatography to establish optimum conditions and apparatus performance for the separation of the components of the distillate. This was achieved by using a 6' x 1/4" SE-30 column.
The peaks were identified by using a combined gas chromatographic and mass spectrometric technique. The identification of peaks was also aided by noting enhancement of peak size when known materials were chromatographed with the mixture.
After the components of the mixture were known, a quantitative gas chromatographic analysis procedure was developed.
