Nitrosation of Soil Organic Matter: II. Gas Chromatographic Separation of Gaseous Products1

Abstract

Abstract

Gas chromatographic techniques were developed for separating and determining inorganic gases in experimental systems dealing with losses of soil N. A single column, consisting of acid-washed chromatographic-grade coconut charcoal, gave excellent resolution of H2, N2, CO, CO2, N2O, and NO (or O2). The sensitivity of the method for NO and CO was improved considerably by blocking sorption sites responsible for irreversible retention of these gases. Alkyl nitrites did not interfere with the separations.
