Environmental and Process Monitoring

IMS responds to a vast range of volatile organic compounds as well as inorganic pollutants such as SO2, HF, NOX and H2S. Adaptations of military technology have been used successfully for applications designed to operate in remote and isolated environments (hydrazine monitoring during space shuttle missions, for example). However, the use of IMS as a presumptive monitoring technique for the supervision of pollution prevention measures has yet to be adopted, although research in Europe and the USA has already begun on the technology transfer from the military to the environmental arena.

IMS has also been applied to water monitoring. Solid-phase extraction, membrane thermal desorption and electrospray of environmental water samples have all been developed. No doubt solid phase microextraction will be reported soon as well.
