Nitrogen, Oxygen, Argon Composition Analysis—New Chromatographic Methods
During the course of an experimental study of the liquid-vapor equilibria of the nitrogen-oxygen-argon system [1, 2], it was found desirable to develop a rapid and accurate method for the analysis of equilibrium samples. After consideration of a number of possible analytical methods, such as chemical reactions for nitrogen and oxygen [3, 4] or mass spectrometry , gas chromatography was selected as the most likely to provide an acceptable technique.
