Using Empore™ C18 SPE Disk to Extract SVOCs in Drinking Water Followed by GC-MS Analysis for EPA Method 525.2
contributed by CDS Analytical |
CDS EmporeTM (formerly 3M™ Empore™) C18 Solid Phase Extraction (SPE) disks facilitate rapid and reliable sample preparation and provide excellent analyte recovery for clean chromatograms. This application note demonstrates the performance of such disk in the monitoring of drinking water samples under EPA Method 525.2.
The target analyte list for EPA Method 525.2 is comprised of 110 compounds that are representative of four organic compound classes as pesticides, polynuclear aromatic hydrocarbons, PCBs, phthalates and adipates. Method detection limits (MDLs), as published in the method, ranges from 0.03-2.4μg/L and the recovery rate varies from 20 – 180% for each individual compound. However, after averaging each compound within the four compound classes, the averaged recovery rate for each class is:
- Phthalates & Adipates
