Abstract : A test in which wet air samples were analyzed for trace contaminants was conducted. Sample processing and analysis techniques used during the test are described. The sample processing technique provided a way to transfer the 77 K condensables in each sample to a trap of a small volume. This trap was designed to allow removal of small portions of both the sample vapor and the liquid for mass spectrometric and chromatographic analyses. The chromatographic and mass spectrometer instrumentation, calibrations, and data reduction procedures are described. The basic test results are presented and discussed. Observations are made concerning the utility of the procedures used.
