Abstract Corona discharge ion mobility spectrometry permits the determination of n-alkanes and branched chain alkanes within the low ppm range. For n-alkanes, one or two product ion peaks are observed. Two product ion peaks are detectable in lower concentration range only (<30-45 ppm in dependence on physical and chemical properties of n-alkanes). With increasing concentrations, the ion mobility spectra show one product ion peak with a sharp peak profile. The reduced mobilities of these peaks decrease regularly with increasing molecular weight. Series of product ion peaks are obtained for branched chain alkanes. Characteristic fragment ions are additionally formed in comparison with n-alkanes.
