I want to produce an electrochemical/electron ionising detector and would like some help.
Hi readers, I want to create a device very much like a Carbon Monoxide detector. I want to detect a specific solvent.
I think I have 3 questions (the first of which maybe best posted on a chemistry forum aswell);
1) Is electron ionisation possible with all element of the periodic table?
2) Is it as easy as contacting a manufacture and telling them what I need? (FYI I have not applied for a patent as yet)
3) Am I asking the right questions with regards to my project?
Any and all help would be greatly appreciated
Kind regards
Mike

Thanks for getting back to me so soon.
Please be reassured, I won’t be turning up on Dragons Den in the near future.

I have told NO ONE about my project and/or the solvents molecular structure and do not intent to until I get the patent.

Kind regards
Mike

Hi Burtus
Thanks for getting back to me so soon.
I’m not wanting to make this thing. I want to give the spec’s to others who can.
I'll leave it to the Doc to make the Flux capacitor... I just want to drive the DeLorean (Back to the future joke).

Kind regards
Mike

I just read back my reply and I think it sounded so rude. What I should have said/added is that I have some reading to do! You input is greatly appreciated.
Oops

Hello,

There are a lot of types of ionisation methods:

Ionisation methods include the following:
Atmospheric Pressure Chemical Ionisation (APCI)
Chemical Ionisation (CI)
Electron Impact (EI)
Electrospray Ionisation (ESI)
Fast Atom Bombardment (FAB)
Field Desorption / Field Ionisation (FD/FI)
Matrix Assisted Laser Desorption Ionisation (MALDI)
Thermospray Ionisation (TSP)

The fat printed are descibed on this page:

An other page with a lot of links is this one:
