Isotope fractionation in methane reactions studied by gas chromatography and liquid scintillation
Determination of (14)C-marked methane by gas chromatography and liquid scintillation counting is shown to be useful in studies of isotope effects. Data on the specific activity is used to separate the contributions of (14)CH(4) and (12)CH(4) to the gas chromatographic peak area. Thus the system is well suited for the study of isotope effects. As an example the difference in diffusion for (12)CH(4) and (14)CH(4) is observed. The total efficiency is determined without resort to a standard by utilising information on the specific activity.
