US EPA Method 525.2

US EPA Method 525.2, Semivolatiles in drinking water has a large list of diverse analytes. It is used as a routine check of drinking water purity.

US EPA Method 525.3

US EPA Method 525.3 is the next EPA revision of 525.2, however there are signficant changes which make the newer 525.3 a vastly improved method. Several of the major changes are as follows:

  • The sorbent material has been changed from C18 to DVB (divinylbenzene). This yields better recoveries over a wider pH range.
  • The preservation/dechlorination scheme has changed from HCL and sodium sulfite, to ascorbic acid, EDTA, and citric acid. This is a safer for field sampling crews, and allows bottles to be shipped with preservatives pre-added.
  • The internal standard is added to the final extract, not prior to the extraction as with 525.2.
  • The use of SIM mode is an option for regulated compounds that have difficulty reaching detection limits.
  • The surrogate perylene-d12 has been dropped. Pentachlorophenol-C13 is now used as an internal standard for pentachlorophenol.

US EPA 508.1

US EPA Method 508.1 for pesticides in drinking water. Over the years since pesticides began to be developed they have benefited society and yet caused concerns. As better understanding of chronic exposure continues, measurements are critical to understand human and animal exposure.

The Extraction of Chlorinated Pesticides, Herbicides, and Organohalides for EPA Method 508.1 using Automated Cartridge SPE (AN074)

Setting up for 508.1 Chlorinated Pesticides, Herbicides, and Organohalides (AN006)

EPA Method 535

US EPA Method 535 for herbicide degradates in drinking water. Herbicides are the most broadly used form of pesticide.

Solid Phase Extraction of US EPA 535 for Chloroacetanilide and Acetamide Degradates in Drinking Water Samples Prior to Liquid Chromatography/Tandem Mass Spectrometry (AN90)

EPA Method 537

US EPA Method 537 for the measurement of polyfluorinated and perfluorinated chemicals Is increasingly important.

The Extraction of Perflluorinated Alkyl Acids (PFAAs) in Drinking Water using Automated Cartridge SPE (AN113)

EPA Method 521

US EPA Method 521 for nitrosamines in drinking water. An emerging class of disinfection by-product compounds with health effects is nitrosamines which result from chloramination or chlorination if the water is nitrogen-rich.
