VOC Testing and Analysis


Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs) are compounds that are emitted from certain solids or liquids at either room temperature or elevated temperatures. The method utilized for the analysis and detection of VOCs is called static headspace / gas chromatography. The technique involves heating the sample to a predetermined temperature with the resulting vapors (i.e. VOCs) being swept into the analytical column for separation and identification.
