Precision and accuracy values were generated primarily from 8 replicate analyses of fortified reagent water using a liquid-solid C extraction cartridges and a quadrapole mass spectrometer fpa Table 3 of the Method. I’m not sure what changed.

Organic compounds are extracted from the LSE with small quantities of ethyl acetate followed by methylene chloride with further 52.52 of the solvent. Does anyone have any ideas on where this maybe happening????? Major loss of Anthracene, Benzo a pyrene and Perylene-d Organic compounds – Instrument used for this test: Fri Dec 09, 8: Also, if I run the extract as soon as they are ready we get low recoveries but if we wait to run them the compounds disappear completely.

Are the recoveries of the other compounds low too?

Latest Blog Posts from Separation Science. Thu Nov 05, 3: For these latter analytes 8 replicate reagent water samples were analyzed, except for PCB 6 replicates and toxaphene 7 replicatesand except for bis 2-ethylhexyl phthalate and di-n-butyl phthalate for which 7 replicates of fortified tap water were analyzed.


I’ll also try to keep the lights out a bit and see if that helps too. We actually don’t use sodium sulfate to dry. Separation Science offers free learning from the experts covering methods, applications, webinars, eSeminars, videos, tutorials for users of liquid chromatography, gas chromatography, mass spectrometry, sample preparation and related analytical techniques.

I am having a little less recovery with the other PAHs, but Anthracene is definately being oxidized because I can see the anthraquinone on the MS. Extracts can be held up to 30 days. The method contains a large amount of additional information. Rinsing apparatus replacing syringes and injection port liners as needed can minimize contamination.

Mon Mar 28, 5: Follow us on Twitter: In total there are 6 users online:: Please, ANY ideas are welcome. Analyte CAS Number 1,3-Dimethylnitrobenzene Acenaphthene-d10 Alachlor Atrazine Benzo a pyrene Bis 2-ethylhexyl Adipate Bis 2-ethylhexyl Phthalate Chrysene-d12 Hexachlorobenzene Hexachlorocyclopentadiene Perylene-d12 Phenanthrene-d10 Simazine Triphenyl Phosphate Examples: If you have suggestions for improvement, we would enjoy hearing from you.

A method detection limit MDL must be determined for each analyte. Thu Mar 03, 8: Samples can be held for 14 days generally see Sample Handling section of the method for exceptions. This is why I think it’s in the extraction.

We use an automated system setup of Horizon extractors atlantic C18 disks and a Horizon Dpa Vap for drying and concentration. No warranty express or implied is made as to the website accuracy, completeness, or applicability such as the age of a method and whether or not it applies to your project.


This method provides procedures for the determination of a wide range of organic compounds found in finished drinking water, source water, or drinking water in any treatment stage. We use a hydrophobic membrane on the dry vap to dry the sample.

Wed Jan 04, 2: Initial demonstration of laboratory capability followed by regular analyses of laboratory reagent blanks LRBslaboratory fortified blanks LFBsand laboratory fortified matrix 552.2. Are they also picky to humidity?

Mon Jan 07, 8: I haven’t tried to avoid light although our sample bottles and chromatography vials are all amber glass.

I have tried bypassing the dry vap as well as spiking before the dry vap and get similar results. I have noted the formation of the quinone from anthracene so assume Ela am loosing both to oxidation.

For chlordane data, see alpha- and gamma-chlordane, and for PCBs see specific Aroclors. How long have your PAH recoveries been low?

If you weren’t the lowest bid, we don’t get to play with your eqiupment. Additional QC procedures are recommended. All of the PAHs are a little low, how light sensitive are they? All of our equipment purchases go through the bidding process.
