Analytical methods for determining individual aldehyde, ketone, and alcohol emissions from gasoline-, methanol-, and variable-fueled vehicles are described. These methods were used in the Auto/Oil Air Quality Improvement Research Program to provide emission data for comparison of individual reformulated fuels, individual vehicles, and for air modeling studies. The emission samples are collected in impingers which contain either 2,4-dinitrophenylhydrazine solution for the aldehydes and ketones or deionized water for the alcohols. Subsequent analyses by liquid chromatography for the aldehydes and ketones and gas chromatography for the alcohols utilized auto injectors and computerized data systems which permit high sample throughput with minimal operator intervention. The quality control procedures developed and interlaboratory comparisons conducted as part of the program are also described. (Copyright (c) 1992 Society of Automotive Engineers, Inc.)
