Analyze Hydrocarbon Impurities in 1,3-Butadiene with an Agilent J&W GS-Alumina PT Column

Version 1

    Application Note

    Energy and Chemicals



    The typical method for analyzing hydrocarbon impurities in 1,3-butadiene was easily and successfully transferred from an Agilent J&W GS-Alumina column to an Agilent J&W GS-Alumina PT column of the same dimensions with two integrated particle traps. An Agilent 7890A gas chromatograph configured with a High Pressure Liquid Injector and column backflushing was used. The GS-Alumina PT column exhibited the same selectivity as the GS-Alumina column without integrated particle traps, and all compounds of interest were well separated. Furthermore, the GS-Alumina PT column with integrated dual-ended particle trapping technology can eliminate the risk of leakage or blockage at connectors, protect valves from particles that can shed from the PLOT column, and offer increased stability and reliability for valve-switching analysis. Excellent repeatability and stability were demonstrated.
