Short summary
Current measurement methods do not provide information about the speciation of oxidized mercury compounds in the atmosphere, leading to uncertainty about which mercury compounds exist and how oxidized mercury is formed. We have developed a gas chromatography/mass spectrometry-based system for identification of oxidized mercury compounds. We discuss the main features and performance of this system.
