Unformatted text preview: uce the obstacle peaks due to the fragmentation because the IA is completely soft-ionization technique. To realize the solutions above-mentioned, we developed a new EGA apparatus with skimmer interface and IA-QMS. The apparatus consisted of IA-QMS model L241G-IA (Canon ANELVA Technix Co.) and IR image furnace with skimmer interface based on TPD type R (Rigaku Co.) The skimmer interface consisted of two conical quartz tubes wit h orifices respectively. The schematic of this instrument and its application of polymer pyrolysis and VOC evolution monitoring will be presented.

CNTs have been said the most innovative materials of the 21 century due to their extraordinary properties and their enormous potential applications. The unique structure and properties of CNTs have seen a wide range of the potential applications in advanced technologies. New applications for these amazing nanotubes are being reported daily in electronics, chemistry, optics and biology. One of our core CNTs synthesis technologies is the decomposition of methane via catalytic vapour deposition (CVD). This technology adopts an easy and simple single-step process to decompose methane gas into carbon and hydrogen with the presence of a catalyst. Our findings represent a major breakthrough in the CNTs field, simultaneously addressing many critical problems, such as scalability, purity, and cost that had plagued the use of CNTs for real applications and opens up new opportunities ranging from biology to nanodevices and optical applications. It is noteworthy that the demand of CNTs is growing exponentially...
