Mon Jan 07, 8: Please contact the webmaster here. Please add to the discussion any other ideas you may have. The method contains a large amount of additional information.

We use an automated system setup of Horizon extractors atlantic C18 disks and a Horizon Dry Vap for drying and concentration.

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. My dperylene along with the benzo a pyrene is also a major problem. I am having a little 552.2 recovery with the other PAHs, but Anthracene is definately being oxidized because I can see the anthraquinone on the MS.

Analyte Loss EPA – Chromatography Forum

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 evaporation of the solvent. 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.


All of the PAHs are a little low, how light sensitive are they? Initial demonstration of laboratory capability followed by regular analyses of laboratory reagent blanks LRBslaboratory fortified e;a LFBsand laboratory fortified matrix samples. So we installed less intensive lights and tried to do the extraction in the dark as much as possible which solved our problem.

Major loss of Anthracene, Benzo a pyrene and Perylene-d For chlordane data, see alpha- and gamma-chlordane, and for PCBs see specific Aroclors.

It turned out to be the lights.

Additional QC procedures are recommended. If you weren’t the lowest bid, we don’t get to play with your eqiupment. Extracts can be held up to 30 days. Google [Bot] and 5 guests.

Does anyone have any ideas on where this maybe happening????? We didn’t used to have this problem and are now starting to see this happening in our I have noted the formation of the quinone from fpa so assume I am loosing both to oxidation. Thu Mar 03, 8: Organic compounds – Instrument used for this test: Please, ANY ideas are welcome. Kelso, Washington Laboratory Method information displayed is provided for informational purposes only. I’ll also try to keep ea lights out a bit and see if that helps too.

We adjust the QC to match the samples which are always more like than 2. Analyte Loss EPA Are the recoveries of the other compounds low too?


Home Chromatography Sample Prep. Since the method eppa “less than a pH of 2” most of our collectors overkill on the HCl.

Fri Dec 09, 8: Wed Jan 04, 2: Mon Mar 28, 5: B Contamination from sample carryover: Are they also picky to humidity? Samples can be held for 14 days generally see Sample Handling section of the method for exceptions. We actually don’t use sodium sulfate to dry. Latest Blog Posts from Separation Science. Follow us eps Twitter: We use a hydrophobic membrane on the dry vap to dry the sample.

EPA Method 525.2

That could be the epaa. A method detection limit MDL must be determined for each analyte. We are having the same issue. I haven’t tried to avoid light although our sample bottles and chromatography vials are all amber glass. All of our equipment purchases go through the bidding process.

Rinsing apparatus replacing syringes and injection port liners as needed can minimize contamination. 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. This is why I think it’s in the extraction.
