The technical result of the present invention is expressed in increasing the accuracy of determining the molar ratios of sensitivity. table 2. The invention relates to gas chromatography and can be used for qualitative and quantitative analysis of unidentified components of complex mixtures of substances belonging to different classes of organic compounds.Known chromatographic the strain constraint equations on the results of chromatographic analyses of several mixtures of unidentified components with different content at constant volume of the sample [1].The disadvantage of this method is the relatively low accuracy of determination of the correction coefficients, since the calculation is performed according to the results of several analyses (number mixtures must be greater than or equal to the number of identified coefficients for the components of these mixtures). The solution of the normalized system of equations is performed with relatively large errors.There is also known a method of quantitative analysis of unidentified components of the mixture, close in molecular structure and physico-chemical properties to the standard substances comparison added in the analyzed sample, using the method of double internal standard according to the results of one cycle analysis [2].However, the known method does not provide sufficient accuracy for the determination of the correction coefficients, as they are approximately taken equal to the geometric mean value of the sensitivity coefficients of the two standard substances, eluruumiks before and after the studied component.Closest to the claimed invention to the technical essence is a gas chromatographic method for the determination of the concentration of compound which tion number, eluruumideta before and after the designated components and chromatographic signals measured simultaneously by two universal detectors of different types and determine the concentration of components interpolation using the dual internal standard, realizing the normalization correction factors the sensitivity of the individual detectors to the magnitude of the relative sensitivity of the two detectors [3].The disadvantage of this method is the increase of the error to determine the molar ratios of sensitivity to separate the analyzed components, since the measurement results are influenced by many interrelated factors, including how well the selected substances comparison (standards N 1 and N 2), eluruumina before and after the analyte, the affinity of physico-chemical properties and structure of the component and standards, proximity to the unit values of the sensitivity of the analyte relative to the two standards, and the relationship of the retention indices of the index of sensitivity for the two detectors. Sensitivity index I_{h}was proposed in [2] by analogy with the linear retention index I.< / BR>

The retention index of the investigated component on a column with non-polar stationary phase is greater than or equal to its index of sensitivity to thermal conductivity detectors and flame ionization when used as a carrier gas of nitrogen, i.e., Ii-ICACCIDENTand Ii-ICPIDchange of zero or more.2. The index of the sensitivity of the PID proportional to the effective carbon number AUC or the number of carbon atoms in molecules of the analyzed substances Z, responsible for the formation of the signal detector. For hydrocarbons AUC = Z, and for non-hydrocarbon AUC < Z;3.
