Tentatively Identified Compounds by GCMS
Tentatively Identified Compounds (TIC) by GCMS is an analysis intended to identify the components of an unknown mixture.
TIC analysis can be applied to a wide range of sample types for the determination of volatile and semi-volatile components.
Your samples can be introduced to the GC in various ways. Extraction solvents are determined based on your sample matrix.
Injection methods include liquid, Headspace and SPME are available. If you have questions please call and talk to us.
Tentatively Identified Compounds (TIC)Tentatively Identified Compounds (TIC) analysis is an GC-MS analytical technique in which an unknown mixture is separated into its components and then identified. This technique has wide applicability and usefulness as a way of taking an unknown mixture and determining what is in it.
Who Uses this Technique?This technique has wide applicability. Anyone with a mixture that they need to characterize can use TIC analysis to determine what it contains. Examples include:
- Waste stream analysis – analysis of and characterization of what is in a waste stream before disposal
- Characterizing solutions or mixtures (of solids) with unusual odor
- Solutions with unusual color
- Evaluation of gasses emitted after a process or reaction
