Only a few mg of Chromatographic fingerprint ash, derivatized by two-step silanization with hexamethyl- disilazane and N,O-bis(trimethylsilyl)trifluoroacetamide, are necessary for the analysis. Samples are directly analyzed Introduction after derivatization, without the need of extraction as a next purification step. Differences in chromatographic profiles Ash is a bulk material composed of unburned residues from reflect the composition uniqueness of each matrix and can be fuel.
