Semi-volatile Chlorinated Compounds Identification via SPME

Solid Phase Microextraction (SPME) followed by HAPSITE ER Detection and Identification of Semi-Volatile Polychlorinated Hydrocarbons in an Aqueous Mixture

An aqueous mixture of SVOCS, consisting of polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHS), polychlorinated aromatic hydrocarbons (PCAHS) and polychlorinated hydrocarbons (PCHS) were sampled and introduced into the HAPSITE ER via the SPME Sampling System. PAHS found in oil, coal, and tar deposits are released into the environment as by-products of fuel buming. PCAHS are manufactured for use as fungicides or fungicide precursors and are sprayed on crop seeds. Both classes of compounds are considered carcinogenic to humans and animals. This application note describes a procedure developed for SPME extraction and HAPSITE ER identification of PAHS, PCAHS, and PCHS from a prepared aqueous solution
