Store in a bottle with a fluoropolymer-lined screw-cap. If the size of the largest particles is i greater than 1 mm, the particle size must be reduced to 1 mm or less prior to extraction i using the procedures in Section Weigh emthod receiver, record the weight, and return the receiver to the blowdown apparatus, concentrating the residue until a fpa weight is obtained. Extract for 18 to 24 hours. Rinse the contents of the bottle with two mL portions of hexane and pour through the sodium sulfate into the apparatus.

For example, weigh 1 to emthod mg of 2,3,7,8-TCDD to three significant figures in a mL ground-glass- stoppered volumetric flask and fill to the mark with nonane. After preparation, the sample is extracted directly using the SPE technique in For aqueous samples containing greater than one percent!

Each sample requires 1. Use within five days of baking. Add 10 uL of nonane to the vial, and evaporate the solvent to the level of the nonane. GC retention time window defining solution and isomer specificity test standard Used to define i the beginning and ending retention times for the dioxin and furan isorners and to demonstrate isomer specificity of the GC columns employed for determination of 2,3,7,8-TCDD and 2,3,7,8- I TCDF.


After equilibration, mthod of hydrochloric acid and mL of methylene chloride: Compliance is also required with any sewage discharge permits and regulations. The most frequently encountered interferences are chlorinated biphenyls, methoxy biphenyls, hydroxydiphenyl ethers benzylphenyl ethers, polynuclear aromatics, and pesticides.

Softer particles can be reduced by grinding in a Wiley mill or meat grinder, by homogenization, or in a blender. Use additional reagent water rinses until all visible solids are removed. McCarty, and Lynn S. All samples must be associated with an!


Paper industry methods suggest that the addition of up to mL of ethanol to a 1-L effluent sample may also reduce emulsion formation. Interferences coextracted from mdthod will vary considerably from source to source, depending on the diversity of the site being sampled. Coarse solids are ground or homogenized.

Computations of relative standard deviation coefficient of variation shall be used to test calibration linearity. Otherwise, the mass spectrometer shall be adjusted and this test repeated until the minimum levels in Table 2 are met.

Extraction and analysis by GC with an electron capture detector BCD can achieve a limit of detection of 0. Shake for 12 to 24 hours. The operating conditions in Section Relative response RR values are used in conjunction with the initial cali- bration data described in Section Elute the interfering compounds with mL hexane and discard the eluate. Record the weight to the nearest 10 mg. At the proper rate of distillation, the balls of the column will actively chatter but the chambers will not flood.

Specification given as concentration in the final extract, assuming a ML volume. Common requests for analysis of fish tissue include whole rpa on, whole fish-skin removed, edible fish fillets filleted in the field or by the laboratoryspecific organs, and other portions.

May be prepared by extraction with methylene chloride.

Use within 90 minutes of mtehod. Drain the water from the Dean-Stark receiver and add any toluene in the receiver to the extract in the flask. Collect the fraction s in a clean mL concentrator tube containing 5 mL of hexane: Cut tissue too large to feed into the grinder into smaller pieces.

Any non-aqueous liquid from multi-phase samples is combined with the solids and extracted in an SDS extractor.

EPA Method 1613B

One liter of aqueous samples i containing one percent solids will contain 10 grams of solids. If only 2,3,7,8-TCDD and 2,3,7,8-TCDF are to dpa determined, the operating conditions and specifications below apply to analysis of those compounds only.

Store in a dessicator. The filter and disk are extracted in an SDS extractor, and the extract is concentrated for cleanup.
