A large-scaled method, using custom-made apparatus, is described for making potassium hydroxide-modified silica gel. Batches as large as 2.3 kg can be made in 16 man-hours. A smaller-scale version of the method, requiring no specialized apparatus, is also described. The method can be used to integrate this adsorbent into many sample-enrichment procedures. Many environmental contaminants of worldwide interest (e.g., polychlorinated biphenyls, polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons, chlorinated dibenzodioxins and dibenzofurans, and many organochlorine pesticides) can be eluted from potassium silicate (KS).
