The different detectors have been evaluated by various authors ' in terms of sensitivity, selectivity, reproducibility, quenching effect, stability, and compound dependence of the sulfur response (Table 10.3).
Selective detectors are especially useful for the analysis of various contaminants in increasingly complex matrices because they largely avoid interference. They can shorten the analysis time by eliminating laborious, time-consuming sample preparation procedures that can also often cause the contamination or loss of analytes. For these reasons selective detectors have been extensively used in the determination of environmental sulfur compounds.
