This is a paper that I wrote more than 30 years ago on the coupling of a GC PID/FID for the identification of hydrocarbons in complex mixtures. This remains one of the popular downloads on our website . I remember calling this technique a “poor man’s mass spec” but the referee made me remove it. I still believe it though. Follow my blog at, and, #PID/FID, #photoionization, #pidanalyzers, #identification of hydrocarbons, #GC. #PID

Our stand alone photoionization detector (PID) was described in a previous blog:
