Adsorbent Resins are utilized by Purge and Trap (P&T) and other thermal desorption applications. A wide variety of adsorbent resins are available from many suppliers and manufacturers. In order to properly select an adsorbent resin for a particular application the user must have knowledge of the types of analytes that he wishes to analyze as well as an understanding of the physical properties of the adsorbent resins available. The purpose of this section is to supply the user with a large volume of data relating to these physical properties of adsorbent resins. The following sections will describe the use of breakthrough volume data on a number of adsorbent resins for more than 200 organic compounds as well as the use of this data and other adsorbent resin physical properties to determine the best adsorbent resin to select for your application. This is the accumulation of about 2 years work by Scientific Instrument Services to collect and compile this data.
The data herein is designed for use by the scientific community to aid in the use of adsorbent resins. As such you are free to take and use this data for you experimentation. However the tables, charts and data enclosed herein cannot be reproduced in publications or other information sources including the Internet without the written consent of Scientific Instrument Services.
