Frequently Used Evaluations for Aerial and Solid Pollution
Analytical methods, gas chromatography (GC) and ion chromatography(IC), are explained in this chapter. Both methods have been used conventionally for the analyses of air pollution and in aqueous chemistry. Gas chromatography exhibits extremely high sensitivity for organic and inorganic components in gas samples. GC can be applied to the analyses of gas samples to examine atmospheric contaminants. It is used to monitor the pollution in exhausted gas from transportation and manufacturing industries. The other applications are the monitoring of various reactions in the gas phase or the surface of materials in basic chemical research fields. Ion Chromatography is widely used to determine ionic species in solution, including effluent solutions from surface treatment plants. In order to yield a high sensitivity and throughput, many improved devices have been developed for IC. The basics of chromatography are also described with examples of actual applications in this chapter.
