Untargeted Volatile E&L Analysis by Static Headspace Sampling with HRAM GC-MS
Headspace gas chromatography uses headspace gas—from the top or "head" of a sealed container containing a liquid or solid brought to equilibrium  —injected directly onto a gas chromatographic column for separation and analysis. In this process, only the most volatile most readily existing as a vapor substances make it to the column.
Headspace gas chromatography for dissolved gas measurement
Figure Table and from the natural humidity of most sam- ples. Two techniques were used for sample addition: piercing the septum of an already closed vial and using the open-vial technique. Headspace transfer time: A 4.
This is particularly true if quantitative measurement is based on the comparative analysis of the sample and a standard. For highly volatile compounds, the uncoated butyl rubber septum D is unacceptable for such an tbeory. The same reasons favoring cooling of a low-mass fused-silica trap by cold gas rather than by a liquid cryogen also chromatogrqphy heating it up again by a hot gas [63, an adsorption capillary with a coating of porous polymer or aluminum oxide as the stationary phase may be particularly useful. However.
Formaldehyde is a highly reactive impurity that can be found in many pharmaceutical excipients. Trace levels of this impurity may affect drug product stability, safety, efficacy, and performance. A static headspace gas chromatographic method was developed and validated to determine formaldehyde in pharmaceutical excipients after an effective derivatization procedure using acidified ethanol. Despite the simplicity of the developed method, however, it is characterized by its specificity, accuracy, and precision. The limits of detection and quantification of formaldehyde in the samples were of 2. This method is characterized by using simple and economic GC-FID technique instead of MS detection, and it is successfully used to analyze formaldehyde in commonly used pharmaceutical excipients. Although considered pharmacologically nonactive, pharmaceutical excipients have critical effects on drug product safety, efficacy, and quality.
