The presence, identity and quantity of amines in the environment should be established to evaluate possible health hazards. In many cases, environmental amines are present at very low concentration and are often found among a myriad of other compounds from which they must be separated and identified. Therefore, analytical methodology for the isolation and quantification of these amines needs selective and sensitive detection. The present article is concerned with the utilization of selective gas chromatographic detectors for amine analysis and their application to the determination of amines in environmental samples.
