Abstract

Abstract Volatile urinary components are analyzed by a combination of gas chromatography, mass spectrometry and a data-acquisition system. Mass fragmentograms using the mass spectrometric data on magnetic tape are recorded for the primary aliphatic alcohols ethanol, n-propanol, isobutanol, n-butanol and isopentanol and the ketones 4-heptanone and cyclohexanone. The mass fragmentograms are used as selective profiles to facilitate recognition of abnormalities in the urinary components in cases of diabetes mellitus.
