An extraction technique, involving homogenization of a sediment sample with dichloromethane at dual pH and phase separation by centrifugation, was used in the determination of 51 organic priority pollutants as identified in a standard reference sediment sample. These compounds were spiked into the sediment and equilibrated for a defined period of time. Separation and identification of individual compounds in the silica gel fractions were accomplished by gas chromatography/mass spectrometry (GC/MS). Method precision and accuracy are discussed. Tentative identifications of other organic compounds found in the sediment are given.
