Headspace analysis is an equilibrium sampling method which involves injeTting the vapor phase of a sample which has been warmed in a sealed vial into a gas chromatograph . This can lead to substantial sensitivity enhancements for volatile components, and can remove the volatiles from non-chromatographable matrices. The combination of headspace gas chromatographic analysis and FT-IR can provide a powerful tool for the identification of volatile organics in a variety of matrices. It also has the potential to enhance GC/FT-IR sensitivity by 1-2 orders of magnitude.
