Quartz Rod Coated with Modified Silica Gel as a Source of CO and CO2 for Standard Gaseous Mixtures
Journal of High Resolution Chromatography
Quartz rods coated with a thin layer of chemically modified silica gel have been used for the generation of a two-component gaseous standard mixture containing carbon monoxide and carbon dioxide. A new method based on thermal decomposition of immobilized compounds chemically bonded to the surface of silica gel has been used in the generation process. The oxalic acid moiety bonded to the glycydoxypropylsilylated surface of silica gel underwent decarbonylation and decarboxylation at 300°C, yielding carbon monoxide and carbon dioxide. On-line connection of a thermal desorber with the GC/FID enabled calibration of the detector following the process of methanization of CO and CO2. The following amounts of CO and CO2 were generated per unit length of the rod: 15.1 × 10−8 Mol cm−1 (RSD = 5.71%) for CO and 34.2 × 10−8 Mol cm−1(RSD = 5.16%) for CO2.
