Abstract : An ultraviolet detector was shown to be highly satisfactory for the selective determination of aromatic components in jet fuels. The detector was operated at 208 nm and used with a glass capillary column gas chromatographic system. The detector gave a linear response in the range of interest and could detect individual benzenes and naphthalenes in jet fuels at levels down to 0.1% and 0.02% respectively. a photoionization detector having a 9.5 ev source was found to be not sufficiently selective for aromatic hydrocarbons to be of value for fuel characterization.
