Abstract:

This step-by-step manual is intended to provide instructions for first-time users in the use and maintenance of the Varian 3400 Gas Chromatograph GC with Pulsed Flame Photometric Detector PFPD. The instructions are specific for the analysis of sulfur mustard HD in diethyl phthalate DEP and are not intended as an exhaustive reference and therefore do not provide any insight into the theory of the PFPD or gas chromatographic principles. The instructions provide guidance for preparing standards, generation of calibration curves, creation of sample lists and the selection of GC methods for the subsequent analysis of samples. There is also a troubleshooting section which outlines simple techniques to combat common problems that may arise whilst using the Varian 3400 GD with PFPD.
