15 Minutes of Fame: One-Step Analysis of PAH-16, BTEX-6, Phenol, Styrene and Divinylbenzene in Wood Gas by UHPLC

A. Hofmann, S. Di Meo & M.B. Huber
Tars can work as an indicator for the quality of a biomass gasification process. Interesting for the description of the gasification process are not only the PAH-16 tar components PAH-16 but also other components like BTEX and benzene derivates like phenol. The tar guideline offers an analysis basing on GC-MS, which is characterised by high selectivity but also by long analyses time. With the optimisation of a gasification plant, a quick statement of the tar...
