The Master Analytical Scheme for Organics in Water (MAS) was applied to samples of influent and effluent wastewaters obtained from a series of municipal wastewater treatment works. The results were expected to provide and indication of treatment efficiency relative to micropollutant content. For each influent and effluent sample pair, the complete MAS was applied. In each individual protocol, target compounds were searched for and quantified using a current database of relative molar response values. For selected samples, a complete qualitative analysis was performed. The concentrations of the identified non-target micropollutants were estimated using previously determined response and recovery factors. Typical results from the MAS protocols are presented and results of the complete study are summarized.
