Material added to a sample to increase its volatilization or that of some component of it. Volatilizers increase the fraction volatilized either by forming more volatile compounds or by increasing the total surface area of all analyte particles (e.g. by explosive disintegration or by dispersal of the analyte in a highly volatile matrix).
