Fill the second syringe in an identical manner from the same sample bottle. Autoinjectors are preferred, especially with splitless injectors. Poor precision is generally traceable to pneumatic leaks, eoa at the injection port. Ascorbic acid has been extensively tested as a dechlorinating agent, and has been found to be as effective as sodium thiosulfate, but without the undesirable generation of sulfur dioxide at low pH.
When purging is complete, the sorbent tube is heated and backflushed with an inert gas to desorb trapped sample components onto a gas chromatography GC column. Decant the top layer into a second mL test tube. If suspended solids are present in the source, a representative portion of solids must be included in the water sample.
Each time such method modifications are made, the analyst must repeat the procedures in Sect. Store at room temperature in a hood for 30 min. Alternatively, a new calibration curve must be prepared for that analyte. The splitless time was set for 30 sec. This detector has proven effective in the analysis of spiked reagent and artificial ground waters. Other columns or element specific detectors may be used if the requirements of Sect.
Other concentration devices or techniques may be used in place of the K-D if the requirements of Sect. The following compounds can be determined by this method. Identify the multicomponent compounds using all peaks that are characteristic of the specific compound from chromatograms generated with individual standards. After analysis of a sample containing metbod concentrations of analytes, one or more injections of MTBE should be made to ensure that accurate values are obtained for the next sample.
If the repetition also fails, a new calibration curve must be generated for that analyte using freshly prepared standards. Otherwise, report results obtained from the reinjected extract, but annotate as suspect. DB-5 bonded fused silica column, 0. Thoroughly clean glassware, including baking or solvent rinse. Madding, working under the direction of Dr. While the extracted sample is being introduced into the gas chromatograph, empty the purging device using the sample syringe and wash the chamber with metod 5-mL flushes of reagent water.
A Tracor Hall Model A detector was used to develop the single laboratory method performance data described in Sect. Programmable capillary column GC equipped with an on-column or split!
Inject mmethod gaseous standard before five min of the min purge time have elapsed. Store at room temper- ature and protect from light. Analytical Balance — Capable of accurately weighing to 0. Then wash with detergent in hot water and rinse with tap water followed by distilled water. The columns used in this method metthod well be adequate, however, no data were collected for these constituents during methods development.
Excessive detector reactor temperatures can also cause low bromoform response. A Tracer photoionization detector and a Tracer Hall model A detector connected in series with a short piece of uncoated capillary tube, 0. Each identified component is measured by relating the response produced tor that compound to the response produced by a compound that is used as an internal standard.
Check the pH of the sample with pH paper; if the sample does not have a pH less than or equal to 2, adjust the pH by adding more 12 N H2S Check the validity of the internal standard calibration factors daily by analyzing a calibration standard.
Interferences may be caused by contaminants in solvents reagents, glassware, and other sample processing equipment. Additional information on laboratory safety is available For those com- pounds that fail these criteria, initial demonstration procedures should be repeated.
A msthod chromatogram obtained with Column 1 is presented in. Analyte stability may be affected by the matrix; therefore, the analyst should verify that mtehod preservation technique metuod applicable to the samples merhod study. If sample extract continues to fail the recovery criterion, report all data for that sample as suspect. Weigh to the nearest 0. If the emulsion interface between layers is more than one- third the volume of the solvent layer, the analyst must employ mechanical techniques to complete the phase separation.
The following conditions were used to generate the single-laboratory accuracy and precision data listed in Sect. Related Posts

EPA Method The analytes pesticides, herbicides, and organohalides are eluted from the LSE disk or cartridge with small volumes of ethyl acetate and methylene chloride, and this eluate is concentrated by evaporation of some of the solvent. The concentrations of analytes are determined using a fused silica capillary column gas chromatography GC system equipped with an electron capture detector ECD. Scope: This method determines 29 chlorinated pesticides, three herbicides, and four organohalides in drinking water, ground water, and drinking water in any treatment stage.

Digrel One of the methods Recap and shake vigorously by hand for 1 min. The gas will rapidly dissolve in the methanol. Esterify acids with diazomethane as described in Sect. This flexible approach should meet the needs and requirements of nearly all laboratories. PIand other suppliers. Lichtenberg and James E. Obtained in this way, the standard deviation includes normal day-to-day variations, and the MDL will be more realistic.
