Real-time monitoring and quality control of organic, inorganic gases and volatiles by IMR-MS

Christian Leidlmair, V&F Analyse- und Messtechnik (AT)

IMR – MS (Ion- Molecule Reaction Mass Spectrometry) is a highly sensitive technology for the real-time monitoring and quality control of organic, inorganic gases and volatiles. The technical principle is based on the ionization of gases followed by a smooth Ion- Molecule Reaction and Mass Spectrometric separation of the analytes. IMR – MS allows for multi-component monitoring of benzene, toluene, methane, acetylene, butadiene, halogenated compounds, alcohols, aldehydes, carboxylic acids, mercaptans, H2S, NO, NO2, NH3, CO, O2, H2O, etc. at sub ppb – Vol% concentrations in a broad range of applications. The presentation will include examples of applications for the quality control of CO2 product-, process- and feedgas according to ISBT quality guidelines.  Further examples will cover the monitoring of specialty gases, the detection of BTX and PAH for biomass gasification and finally the analysis of impurities in H2 for fuel cell applications.
