Thermal Desorption (TD)

Process of releasing compounds from a sample matrix by the application of heat in an inert atmosphere.  Temperatures do not exceed 350°C so no chemical bonds are broken, only vaporisation occurs. Remote sampling is possible, the thermal desorption tube is then returned to the laboratory for GC analysis.
