Abstract

This tutorial review is a critical commentary on the combined use of two instrumental analytical techniques, namely GC-MS and PTR-MS. The first mention of such an analytical approach likely appeared after the year 2000 and despite many advantages, it has not been applied very often. Therefore, the aim of this article is to elaborate on the concept of their combined use and to provide a curse tutorial for those considering taking such an approach. The issue of complementarity was raised in a broad sense of this term. Special emphasis was placed on indicating the possibilities of complementary utilization of GC-MS and PTR-MS and presenting the advantages and disadvantages as well as the current application of these techniques when used together.
