Modernizing Nitrosamine Analysis with Advanced Electron Ionization
Presented here is the use of a novel advanced electron ionization (AEI) source in conjunction with GC triple quadrupole mass spectrometry to provide a simple way to measure nitrosamines at low part per trillion (ng/L, ppt) levels.

Nitrosamines are substances of increasing concern in relation to drinking water safety. As such, low level analysis of these challenging compounds is required. The main reference method (EPA 521) addresses this using a chemical ionization (CI) GC-MS/MS approach. However, the CI approach can present some challenges with routine analysis. Presented here is the use of a novel advanced electron ionization (AEI) source in conjunction with GC triple quadrupole mass spectrometry to provide a simple way to measure nitrosamines at low part per trillion (ng/L, ppt) levels as well as offering the opportunity to make significant method efficiencies during sample preparation.
