A graphitized carbon black (GCB) can be non-porous or porous. The graphitization process results in a highly pure surface with great adsorption and desorption (if required) properties. Surface interactions depend solely on dispersion (London) forces. These particles are:
Used for molecules with an analyte size relative to C3-C20+ n-alkanes
Hydrophobic (can be used in high humidity environments)
Generally, GCB adsorbents offer weaker relative adsorptive strength compared to carbon molecular sieve (CMS) adsorbents, and similar relative adsorptive strength compared to spherical graphitized polymer carbon (SGPC) adsorbents. Our Carbotrap products are a type of GCB adsorbent.
Particles are 20/40 mesh
These large particles allow high flow rates without excessive pressure drops

A laboratory study, using generated atmosphere containing 0.14/23.3 mg/m3 of Benzene, was conducted to adapt an existing industrial hygiene monitoring method for measuring low concentrations of Benzene. This method was developed to determine concentrations of Benzene in the ambient air
In-community non-invasive identification of asthma-specific volatile organic compounds (VOCs) in exhaled breath presents opportunities to characterize phenotypes, and monitor disease state and therapies. The feasibility of breath sampling with children and the preliminary identification of childhood asthma markers were studied.

Benzene is a widely diffuse solvent (atmosphere, cigarette smoke, some foods); in the industrial environment benzene is currently present at concentrations of ppm. A valid method of biological monitoring that is easy to perform is needed for assessing occupational and

Benzene concentrations in urine samples (Cu, ng/L) from 110 workers exposed to benzene in chemical plants and gasoline pumps were determined by injecting urine supernate into a gas chromatograph. The urine was saturated with anhydrous N2SO4 to facilitate the passage
