Chromatographic Analysis of Evolved Contaminants From Spacecraft Materials
The organic materials used in the inhabited area of manned spacecraft were examined for their atmospheric contaminating potential. A sample of each spacecraft material was sealed in a closed, environmentally-controlled chamber and the chamber gas from each sample was subjected to the following tests: (1) odor analysis, (2) carbon monoxide and carbon dioxide analysis, (3) total hydrocarbon content by flame ionization, and (4) qualitative and quantitative analysis of organic contaminants by gas chromatography using three different packed columns.
