To accomplish the stated objectives and to determine the portability and efficacy of the Guardion-7® GC-TMS for analysis of in situ VOCs the following approaches will be utilized: - Evaluate the damaged and undamaged VOC emissions from a tree-nut commodity over the course of a growing season – at distinct phenological events; - Utilize the in situ small-scale collection method (collection bag, SPME) of the USDA-ARS PMR unit to acquire VOCs; - Utilize the Guardion-7® GC-TMS for immediate, in-field, desorbtion, separation, and identification of collected VOCs; - If conditions allow, apply this approach to a second tree-nut commodity Documents NFCA with Torion Techniologies.
