[1790] Müller, M., T. Mikoviny, S. Feil, S. Haidacher, G. Hanel, E. Hartungen, A. Jordan, L. Märk, P. Mutschlechner, R. Schottkowsky, et al., "A compact PTR-ToF-MS instrument for airborne measurements of volatile organic compounds at high spatiotemporal resolution", Atmospheric Measurement Techniques, vol. 7, pp. 3763–3772, 2014.
<p>Herein, we report on the development of a compact proton-transfer-reaction time-of-flight mass spectrometer (PTR-ToF-MS) for airborne measurements of volatile organic compounds (VOCs). The new instrument resolves isobaric ions with a mass resolving power (m/Δm) of &nbsp;1000, provides accurate m/z measurements (Δm &lt; 3 mDa), records full mass spectra at 1 Hz and thus overcomes some of the major analytical deficiencies of quadrupole-MS-based airborne instruments. 1 Hz detection limits for biogenic VOCs (isoprene, α total monoterpenes), aromatic VOCs (benzene, toluene, xylenes) and ketones (acetone, methyl ethyl ketone) range from 0.05 to 0.12 ppbV, making the instrument well-suited for fast measurements of abundant VOCs in the continental boundary layer. The instrument detects and quantifies VOCs in locally confined plumes (&lt; 1 km), which improves our capability of characterizing emission sources and atmospheric processing within plumes. A deployment during the NASA 2013 DISCOVER-AQ mission generated high vertical- and horizontal-resolution in situ data of VOCs and ammonia for the validation of satellite retrievals and chemistry transport models.</p>
