Analysis of trimethyl carboxyphosphate by gas chromatography-mass spectrometry.

Analytical Biochemistry 376(2):283 (2008) PMID 18294947

Analysis of trimethyl carboxyphosphate samples by gas chromatography-mass spectrometry, using typical conditions resulted in significant decomposition of the analyte. Optimization of injection conditions, including conditioning of the injection port liner, produced a dramatic increase in observed peak areas and afforded an effective method for detection of trimethyl carboxyphosphate at the <1 microg mL(-1) level.
