An official website of the United States government. They generally have thought of and tried during the interlaboratory collaboratives everything that might work for the 33510c. They probably found that the solvent-solvent extraction is the best way to go. I know that many EPA methods take the “prove it and use it” approach, just wanted to know if anyone succeeded in adapting it for wide usage.
Liquid/Liquid extractionis there another verisatile way? – Chromatography Forum
Method is a nice alternative if you can achieve adequate sensitivity. This method is applicable to the eoa and concentration of water-insoluble and slightly water-soluble organics in preparation for a variety of chromatographic procedures.
In our experience we recover ml of the initial 6ml of solvent. We don’t do liq-liq on waste water, but some of our surface waters aren’t much better I think.
This document outlines the procedure for isolating water-insoluble and slightly soluble organic compounds from aqueous samples in preparation for a variety of chromatographic procedures. Has anyone looked into validating EPA to use instead of ? We’ve made some changes to EPA. Contact Us to ask a question, provide feedback, or report a problem.
As you say we had to prove it works by proficiency tests and by validation results. Please contact the webmaster here.

No warranty express or implied is made as to the website accuracy, completeness, or applicability such as the age of a method and whether or not it applies to your project. But we are a drinking water lab and this method is under accreditation. Alternatively, is there any reliable and simple automatisation available?

SW-846 Test Method 3510C: Separatory Funnel Liquid-Liquid Extraction
The only option on your profile is Yahoo messenger and that spa not seem to work. Those I think would be even better than doing the extraction in the bottle, just for purposes of centrifuging pea you have to limit the centrifuge speed on the bottles to prevent breaking them. Sun Jul 03, This method describes a procedure for isolating organic compounds from aqueous samples. I have sent an email to the MICE site to ask if the sample bottle can be considered equivalent to a separatory funnel so we can claim EPA Method C as the extraction method, or if we have to claim EPA Method microscale extraction method with modification to larger vial size.
In the event of an environmental emergency imminently threatening the ela of human life or where necessary to 3510d certain property, the EPA website will be updated with appropriate information.
Yes it is an in-house method, but I don’t really see a difference in shaking a sample in a separation funnel or in a centrifuge tube Do you extract just once or many times? A measured volume of sample, usually 1 liter, at a specified pHis serially extracted with methylene chloride using a separatory funnel. If your waste water is really high in solids, it probably won’t work very well.

I doubt that our lab will invest a lot of money into costly automation, but knowing the options 3501c better than not. Please note that all information on the EPA website may not be up to date, and transactions and inquiries submitted to the EPA website may not be processed or responded to until appropriations are enacted.
Hey James, May I contact you personally?
We compare our surrogate recoveries to the mean of the recovery found in our calibration which is made in drinking water.
Thu Mar 03, 8: Jump to main content. I’ve tried researching for alternatives, but found none. I have run a Demonstration of Capability study using ml boston round bottles as the separatory funnel and shaking on a horizontal shaker table. Thu Apr 18, 2: It still is liq-liq, but it is a lot easier than working with seperation funnels etc. The in house method mentioned above is close enough, but we’re an ISO accredited laboratory and I was wondering how feasible it is.
Please call for availability. Fri Jul 20, 9:
