High Sensitivity Analysis of Formaldehyde using NCI-GC/MS

In June 1998, the Japanese Environment Agencycreated a list of items to be monitored for waterenvironmental preservation, where 300 substancesare listed. Procedure manuals for monitoring thesesubstances issued by the Water Quality Bureau of theEnvironment Agency issued in December 1999includes the method for analyzing formaldehyde, oneof the substance to be monitored. According to thismethod, formaldehyde is derivatized with PFBOA(pentafluorobenzylhydroxylamine) (see Scheme 1),and the produced PFBOA formaldehyde is analyzedby GC/MS. Quantitation should be conducted by SIMmeasurement with the EI (Electron Ionization) method.
