The working group component-specific isotope analysis is a cooperation of users of the stable isotope analysis facilities of BayCEER. They share the interest of stable isotope analysis in individual compounds or component groups.

For component-specific analysis of stable isotopes of carbon, nitrogen, oxygen, and hydrogen, different equipment is available:

  • GC-C-IRMS: For isotope analysis of compounds to be analyzed by GC
  • PreCon-GC-IRMS: For isotope analysis of trace gases that can be trapped and concentrated via PreCon traps in liquid nitrogen
  • Pyrolysis-IRMS: For isotope analysis of oxygen and hydrogen in water and solids

The different projects and publications provide and overview of components and topics covered by our work.
