Abstract

Effective diffusional time constants for acetone are extracted from adsorption and desorption curves using Zero Length Column chromatography (ZLC). Compressed gas cylinders and mass flow controllers are used to generate the gas stream of known concentration and flow rate. Select inorganic carrier gases are used as a check for the consistency of negligible secondary resistances. A flame ionization detector (FID) is then used to detect the VOCs. The effective diffusivities of acetone are measured between 25°C and 65°C and at concentrations of 30 ppmv and 60 ppmv.
