Abstract: The Hadamard transform-gas chromatography/mass spectrometry (HT-GC/MS) technique was successfully employed for the detection of hexamethyldisiloxane (HMDSO, C(6)H(18)OSi(2)) at the sub-nL/L level in a semiconductor wafer cleanroom. Indoor air samples were collected from the room, according to EPA Method TO-17 using a Tedlar bag where the air samples were allowed to pass through an absorption tube for 24 h. The condensed components were then heated and simultaneously injected into a GC column through a Hadamard…
