Real-Time Mass Spectrometry of Exhaust Gas From Automobiles Utilizing Laser Ionization (1)~Development of Simultaneous Analyzer of Multicomponents
Published May 20, 2009 by Society of Automotive Engineers of Japan in Japan
Event: JSAE Spring Conference
A simple real-time measurement system for the components of volatile organic compounds (VOCs) and polyaromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) in automobile exhaust gas using a laser ionization method was developed. In this method, many kinds of VOCs and PAHs were observed simultaneously, and real-time changes of their concentration were obtained at 1 second intervals. As a test measurement, exhaust gas from a motorcycle was monitored in real-time, and real-time concentration changes of many kinds of hydrocarbons like toluene (92), xylene (106) trimethylbenzene (120), naphthalene (128), etc., were observed. Using this method, real-time assessment of automobile exhaust gas can be developed.
