Characteristics of the Phosphate Sensitive Sodium Sulfate Modified Hydrogen Flame Ionization Detector

  • Royce E. Johnson


Highly selective and sensitive gas Chromatograph ionization detectors have become indispensable in this age of pesticides and herbicides. The electron attachment detector, for example, has aided chemical manufacturers in developing many effective, safe-to-use pesticides. Regulatory agencies have found the electron attachment detector indispensable for their pesticide residue examinations.
