The determination of trace levels of formaldehyde in air via Proton-Transfer-Reaction-Mass-Spectrometry (PTR-MS) has been reported in several publications. Especially in case of breath analysis – an important field for PTR-MS measurements – relatively high formaldehyde concentrations were found. However, due to the low mass of the target compound interferences from fragment ions of larger molecules are likely. In this study breath analysis aiming at the determination of formaldehyde via PTR-MS and online-formaldehyde analysis (basing on the Hantzsch reaction) is performed. The presence of alcohols obviously increased the amount of detected m/z 31 while no change of the online-analyzer signal occurred. Additionally, the determination of the rate constant kf of the formaldehyde ionization in the PTR-MS is performed on the basis of emission chamber tests. The results illustrate the vast complications when quantifying formaldehyde in air via PTR-MS at m/z 31.
