DISCRIMINATION OF SPILLED OILS BY HIGH SPEED GEL PERMEATION CHROMATOGRAPHY WITH ULTRAVIOLET SPECTROMETRIC DETECTOR

High speed gel permeation chromatography using HSG-15 (polystyrene gel, Shimadzu) and teterahydrofuran with a UV spectrometric detector is an efficient method for the discrimination of oils spilled into sewer pipes and the sea. Unlike GC analysis, the chromatograms, obtained by measuring the absorbancy at 254, 280, and 300 nm, distinguish oils of different molecular weight fractions and do not change as the oil weathers. The method identified the source of an oil spill at a petroleum refinery at Kurashiki and the oil type present at Kii Suido.
