Determine Impurities in High-Purity Propylene Oxide with Agilent J&W PoraBOND U

Version 1

    Application Note

    Energy & Chemicals



    The analysis of impurities in propylene oxide, including propylene, acetaldehyde, methanol, propanal, ethylene oxide, and furan was carried out with an Agilent 7890A GC/FID system and an Agilent J&W PoraBOND U PLOT column. The content of impurities was determined by using the correction area normalization method. The resulting low method-detection limit, good resolution, sample recovery, and repeatability demonstrate the high selectivity and sensitivity of the method. The method is applicable for the determination of impurities in propylene oxide from different production processes.
