COMPREHENSIVE SUMMARY TEXT ON CHEMICAL DETECTION PRODUCTS BY DET (March 2016): This is a one-of-a-kind document describing DET's pioneering chemical detection technology that uses electrically-heated ceramic ionizing elements to convert selected chemical compounds to detectable electrical current. Includes an extensive portfolio of chromatograms illustrating selective detection of compounds containing N, P, O, Cl, Br, I, Pb, Sn, or Si atoms, or compounds containing NO2, CH2, Pyrrole vs. Pyridine, and certain other functional groups.

DET Rep. 70 (October 2015): DET Company Milestone, 25,000th Ceramic Ion Source Shipped June 2015. 1.) Catalytic Pyrolysis Ionization (CPID) of Branched Alkanes. 2.) CCID analysis of Saturated vs. Unsaturated FAMEs. 3.) CCID analysis of neat B100 and B20 samples. 4.) Varying the catalytic activity of TID/CPID ceramic ion sources. 5.) Newly identified CCID selectivity for o-Xylene vs. m,p-Xylenes.   

DET Rep. 69 (June 2015):  1.) "Thinking beyond the NPD box" - inexpensive conversion of NPD equipment to multiple modes of selective GC detection. 2.) GC-CCID differentiation between Saturate vs. Unsaturate and Mono-Unsaturate vs. PolyUnsaturate FAMEs. 3.) TID-10 (TID-1) Thermionic Surface Ionization Detection of degradation products in Petroleum and Biofuel samples. 4.) TID-10 (TID-1) selective detection of compounds containing a Five Member Carbon or Nitrogen Ring structure.

DET Rep. 68 (Summer 2014): 1.) Catalytic Combustion Ionization Detection (CCID) - more characteristics of the selectivity for n-Paraffins. 2.) Fingerprint chromatograms of Gasolines by selectively detecting Alkane and Oxygenate constituents. 3.) GC/CCID - a unique tool for investigating catalytically induced combustion of individual Hydrocarbon and FAME constituents in complex Petroleum and Biofuel samples. 4.) Inexpensive extension of Agilent NPD equipment to TID-10 & CCID modes of selective detection (Oxygenates, CH2 groups, etc.). 5.) Recent developments in NP detection on Bruker/Varian GCs.

DET Rep. 67 (March 2013): 1.) Catalytic Combustion Ionization Detection (CCID) - essential requirements for this unique selectivity of CH2 groups; 2.) CCID relative responses to different classes of Hydrocarbons as the Oxygen concentration in the detector gas is changed; 3.) Variations in detector Oxygen can adjust the number and type of selected compounds detected in CCID analyses of Petroleum samples (Alkanes vs. Alkenes, Linear vs. Branched Hydrocarbons); 4.) FAME and Triglyceride responses vs. detector Oxygen.
