Several detector systems are marketed as capable of measuring TGNMOC. In this report, data are presented on the laboratory evaluation of a Catalyzed Flame Ionization Detector, a Thermionic Ionization Detector, an Oxygen-Flame Ionization Detector, and an Elemental Analyzer for TGNMOC measurement. Fourier Transform Infrared Spectroscopy was also evaluated as a candidate detector. The primary performance requirement was that the detectors produce a equal response for all organic compounds in a mixture, including oxygenated compounds, based on the number of carbon atoms in the compound.
