A simple gas chromatographic method has been developed for analysis of hydrogen sulfide in hydrogen at the 0.5 to 100 ppm level. After enriching the traces of hydrogen sulfide by absorption in a gas loop packed with the chosen column support at 77 K it was determined by using a Chromosorb G column with silicone 550 and phthalic anhydride as liquid phases, hydrogen as carrier gas and a thermal conductivity detector. The detection limit was found to be about 0.5 ppm of hydrogen sulfide.
