Abstract
The construction of a Variable Parameter Plasma Chromatograph (VPPC) tube and another type of tube using standard parts from EV Inc. have been completed. Reassembling of the Mini tube has also been completed. A Nicolet Signal Averager (NSA 1170 Model) was acquired to read the signal out of the VPPC tube. Several series of experiments with the various drift lengths of 2.54, 8.35, 11.67 and 16.67 cm have been conducted to find an optimum drift length for resolution and sensitivity. Results obtained so far indicate that the optimum tube length with the conditions employed in this work appears to be in the range of 15 to 17 cm, showing the peak II to peak III resolution of the position reactant ion peaks to be between 1.70 and 2.00 at 140 approximates to 200C. This resolution corresponds to 10 approximates to 40% improvement over the resolution achieved by PCP, Inc.
