Abstract

A simple method is described for trapping airborne volatile compounds in the ng range for their subsequent gas chromatographic-mass spectrometric analysis. Volatile compounds are trapped on the inner surface of glass capillaries. The trapped compounds are extracted by rinsing the capillaries with 2-3 μl of solvent, and the extracts are directly analysed. As examples, pheromones are analysed. The method may also be suitable for the collection of volatile compounds from other point sources.
