Abstract

A comparison between the analytical methods for determination of volatile organic compounds, using Tenax GC as an adsorbent and using stainless steel canister collection is made.

Sample collection, analytical system and procedures, data analyses, as well as their fortes and their drawbacks, etc., are discussed.

In addition, a brief description of the developmental history of the above methods as used in the Air Pollution Research Laboratory at the New Jersey Institute of Technology in Newark, New Jersey, is given.
