Abstract:
With the development of the International Space Station and the planned increase in the duration of spacecraft missions NASA (National Aeronautics and Space Administration) issued a challenge for the development of an on-board environmental monitoring system to analyse air and water within a space station. The response to the challenge within the University of Manchester was the Chip Hyphenation Project which sort to bring together miniaturised sampling, separation and detection systems into a single device. Linking the separation and detection systems was the process of ionisation. This study sought to investigate the potential of using electrospray ionisation as a generic ionisation source for the detection of volatile organic compounds (VOCs) and formed part of the Chip Hyphenation Project.
