The feasibility of a new technique, supercritical fluid chromatography/Fourier transform infrared spectrometry (SFC/FTIR), for separation and identification of nonvolatile and labile compounds in complex mixtures is discussed in this report. The design of a high pressure (flow cell) interface is described. The results of a continuing study of possible mobile phases for SFC/FTIR are presented. Finally, SFC/FTIR was applied to a standard test mixture. The current detection limits of one component of the mixture, 2,6-di-t-butylphenol, are presented.
