Here we report on a new instrumental development that allows for direct analysis of liquid samples. The direct aqueous injection (DAI) technique which we will present here turns out to be an ideal solution for direct analysis of liquid samples with PTR-MS. Water solutions were prepared with 1 to 1000 ppbw (part per billion weight) concentrations of methanol, acetonitrile, pyridine (in this case additional mixtures down to 125 pptw were prepared) and cyclohexanol in distilled water. We found that the detection of trace compounds in water is possible over several orders of magnitude down to a concentration level of about 100 pptw (for pyridine at protonated mass m/z = 80 and for about 5 min integration time) with great linearity, while only consuming about 100 ul of the sample. The response time of the setup is between 20 and 25 seconds. This method is applicable to the analysis of all substances and not limited by the permeability of a membrane. Therefore it will open completely new fields of application for the PTR-MS technique.
