Determination of Hydrocarbon Components in Petroleum Naphthas

Using the Pegasus GC-TOFMS, it is possible to reduce the analysis time of Naphthas by taking advantage of the acquisition speed and spectral continuity generated by the mass spectrometer. Method ASTM D5143 was implemented in this platform, but was modified to take advantage of the hardware/software capabilities of the Pegasus. It has been demonstrated that Area percentage and Retention Index calculations can be easily done even when chromatographic coelutions take place.
