Time to take this seriously.
Capillary column gas chromatography combined with ion-trap detector mass spectrometry was used in the identification of 85 constituents of the polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbon fraction of diesel fuel. The main constituents are an extensive range of alkylnaphthalenes; alkylated tetrahydronaphthalenes, benzothiophens, dibenzothiophens biphenyls, fluorenes and phenanthrenes were also identified. Chromatographic retention indices for these compounds were determined to calibrate retention data for routine analysis with flame-ionization detection, and to identify positions of alkyl substitution.
