Acrylonitrile analysis method

Dear Sir/Madam,

I hope this message finds you well.

We are currently attempting to analyze acrylonitrile (m/z 53, 52, 51) using the Perkin Turbo Matrix 40 HS, 6890N GC, and 5975 MSD.

While we have successfully detected substances such as vinyl chloride and bromoform, we are encountering difficulties with acrylonitrile, as no peaks are appearing.

Even when diluting the sample in a solvent and injecting it directly, rather than using the headspace method, we are still unable to obtain satisfactory results.

Could this issue be related to the MSD?

For your reference, we are using a VF-624MS column (30 m × 0.32 mm × 1.8 μm).

We would greatly appreciate any advice or guidance you could provide on this matter.

Thank you for your assistance.
