Modernising Trace Organic Analysis in Environmental Sample Extraction

Mar 18 2020

A book discussing the importance of sample preparation for trace organic analysis is available as a download from Analytix.

Environmental samples must still undergo some type of pretreatment because the sample matrices often are not compatible with modern instrumentation however this stage can contribute up to 50% of the errors in performing the analysis. The problems in sample preparation reported by laboratories include processing times, costs, poor recoveries, reproducibility, and contamination.

The book focuses on helping today’s laboratories understand and overcome the difficulties of sample preparation by learning how to THINK GREEN. Part One focuses on the fundamental theory of extracting an analyte from a sample matrix, a comparison of modern extraction techniques, and post extraction processing methods available. The second part reviews modern instrumental analysis techniques including LC, GC, LCMS, and GCMS and how they relate to the sample preparation process. The final part discusses how advances in microwave technology bring sample preparation to the same standards as instrumental techniques. It compares different extraction techniques and also looks at compliance. A wide number of different application areas are also reviewed.
