US EPA Method 8270D

US EPA Method 8270, Semivolatiles in water offers a large list of analytes that can be monitored in many clean and waste matrices. It can be paired with US EPA Method 3535A for solid phase extraction sample preparation.

Horizon Technology has developed an effective one-pass method, passing the acidified sample through an SPE disk and then through a carbon cartridge, if needed. This avoids the second step, where the sample is basified and extracted again, often causing emulsions.

US EPA 8082

US EPA Method 8082 is specific for polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs), including Aroclor multicomponent mixtures and congeners using a halogen-specific detector on a GC.

Application of Automated Solid Phase Extraction for the Determination of Polychlorinated Biphenyls (PCB) in Water (AN054)

US EPA 8015

US EPA Method 8015 is a method for non-halogenated organics using GC-FID. The method can be used for measurement of a variety of individual compounds or the petroleum hydrocarbons include gasoline range organics (GRO) and diesel range organics (DRO).

US EPA 8141

US EPA Method 8141 is a method providing procedures for the gas chromatographic (GC) determination of organophosphorus (OP) compounds. Gas Chromatography equipped with a flame photometric detector (FPD) or a nitrogen-phosphorus detector (NPD).

Organophosphorus Pesticides by Automated Solid Phase Extraction (SPE): Initial Demonstration of Capability for Selected Compounds (AN034)

US EPA 8330B

US EPA Method 8330B is used for nitroaromatics, nitramines, and nitrate esters by HPLC. The method specifically mentions that solid phase extraction provides advantages, particularly when the analytes are present at low concentrations.
