WA Organic and Isotope Geochemistry Facility

  • Manufacturer: Strata
  • Year: 2010
  • Building: 500
  • Room: 3244

Uses high temperatures and hydrogen pressure to break down macromolecular amenable to GC analysis.

  • Mo catalyst assists in breaking down macromolecular organics.
  • High hydrogen pressures and dry ice trap prevent isomerisation of fragment molecules.
  • Useful for analysis of ancient kerogens and very recent functionalised OM.
