An ASTM standard test procedure is desired for the Proton Transfer Reaction Mass Spectrometer (PTR-MS), a technique that can detect multiple volatile organic compounds (VOC) in real time through positive chemical ionization using H3O+ as the reagent ion. This proposed standard will focus on analyzing for many VOCs in ambient air, process exhaust stream gas and head space as opposed to particulates or liquids.
The title and scope are in draft form and are under development within this ASTM Committee.
