Wastewater & Groundwater Testing
Compound classes that can be extracted using this method include: polynuclear aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs), chlorinated hydrocarbons and pesticides, phthalate esters, organophosphate esters, nitrosamines, haloethers, aldehydes, ethers, ketones, anilines, pyridines, quinolines, aromatic nitro compounds, and phenols.
This application note is compliant with the US EPA Method 8270E to determine a list of 114 semi-volatile organic compounds.
Organochlorine pesticides have been used for several applications (especially as insecticides) and were widely dispersed into the environment over the past decades. Because of their chemical structure, they are non-biodegradable, inert, and extremely persistent in the environment.
This application note follows the requirements of the European Standard EN16693:2015.
Many of the pesticides that were used decades ago have now been banned, due to their known impact on the health of animals and humans. To ensure our continued safety, it’s important to be able to screen for pesticides in our food and water.
How to streamline analysis, meet regulations and achieve laboratory compliance with solid-phase extraction.
