Abstract

An inexpensive, break-resistant IR gas cell has been constructed using a PVC compression tee. The cell allows for multiple experiments to be performed in freshman chemistry and advanced lab courses. The PVC cell can be assembled by the students and then dismantled and cleaned after their experiments are completed. This cell has been successfully used to analyze some of the components of cigarette smoke and car exhaust.
