Existing computer programs for deconvoluting mass spectrometry data derived from gas chromatography/mass spectrometry/computer systems were evaluated, and the most efficient method was introduced into an EPA UNIVAC Computer. The program chosen was that reported by Rindfleisch and his co-workers at Stanford University. The accompanying program listing is included. The Rindfleisch program was tested with both standard runs and environmental samples. Sample components were successfully identified by an independent computer search program with an accuracy approaching 80%.
