A Master Analytical Scheme (MAS) has been developed for the analysis of volatile (gas chromatographable) organic compounds in water. In developing the MAS, it was necessary to evaluate and modify existing analysis procedures and develop new techniques to produce protocols that provide for the comprehensive qualitative-quantitative analysis of almost all volatile organics in many types of water. The MAS provides for analysis of purgeable and extractable, as well as neutral and ionic water soluble, organics in surface and drinking waters and in leachates and various effluents. Nominal lower quantifiable limits range from 0.1 micrograms/L to 100 micrograms/L, depending on chemical/physical class of the analyte and complexity of the aqueous matrix. Recoveries are reported for about 280 model compounds of a wide variety of chemical classes and physical properties dosed into representative samples of several major types of water. The appendices include specific instructions on fabrication of the purge and trap apparatus and ancillary devices for purgeable organics, computerized relative molar response and recovery data for standards analytes, and documentation of the MASQUANT computer program for quantification of MAS data.
