Abstract:

This Phase I research will focus on developing a low power usage chip-based micromachined CC (MMGC) column and sample accumulator. The design of this Innovative miniaturized MMGC will be aimed at reducing the amount of time needed for an analysis. The unique column approach incorporates a stationary phase that will separate organic compounds efficiently. We will investigate the use of several different stationary phase compounds in removable or changeable) MMGC columns or.a multiple column chip. The MMCC chip-based column will be temperature programmable in a multi-zone configuration. Inherent to the design is a unique micromachined organic vapor sampling device employing an innovative microthermal accumulator. Evaluation of this gas chromatographic (GC) column and sample accumulator will be performed using a breadboard set up using organic compounds which are specific in warfare situations.
