Qualitative GC-TOFMS Analysis of Nutmeg Extract: Automated Peak Finding and Spectral Deconvolution of Minor Components

The combination of Fast GC techniques (shorter microbore columns and faster temperature program rates), fast mass spectral acquisition rates, and unique Peak Find and Spectral Deconvolution algorithms allow accurate analysis of 60 nutmeg components in only two minutes using the Pegasus II GC-TOFMS. This represents a 10 fold decrease in data acquisition time. The unique software features also significantly reduce data processing time resulting in an overall decrease of analysis time ofwell over 1 order of magnitude.
