Kinetic and thermodynamic data from effluent gas systems: M38-8/47E-PDF

"In 1933 H.A. Daynes wrote, in the introduction to his book on Gas Analysis, "The practicability of the thermal conductivity method has been known for at least twenty years and, in certain applications, notably the control of combustion in steam-raising plants and the control of ammonia synthesis, it is established as suitable for industrial conditions. Yet in some directions its use has been surprisingly limited." Notwithstanding the detailed analysis of the method provided by Daynes, the first major development in the use of thermal conductivity methods was that of James and Martin who published a classical paper in 1952 in which they described the use of a gas-liquid partition technique for resolving aliphatic acids. The biochemical field was ripe for the development of this elegant technique, and since that time thousands of papers have been published on the application of these principles to various analyses. The combination of thermal conductivity detectors with gas-liquid partition techniques has been very fruitful, but further developments are not limited to the analysis of still more complex gas or liquid mixtures. In this paper, experimental methods will be described in which the gas-liquid partition column has been replaced by a simple saturation column or a column containing a pelletized sample. These substitutions permit the gathering of thermodynamic and kinetic data on various processes, and the method permits utilization of much of the automation repertoire built up for complex gas sample analysis"--Introd., p. 21-22.
