This innovative technology evaluation report describes a demonstration of the HNU-Hanby Environmental Test Kit for determining pentachlorophenol (PCP) contamination in soil. This kit was demonstrated in Morrisville, North Carolina, in August 1993. The objective of this demonstration was to evaluate the technology by comparing its results to those from a confirmatory laboratory that used standard EPA-approved analytical methods. The HNU-Hanby test kit can provide PCP results only in samples that also contain a petroleum hydrocarbon carrier such as gasoline, kerosene, diesel fuel, or fuel oil. The test kit uses the Friedel-Crafts alkylation reaction to detect the petroleum hydrocarbons. This reaction is colorimetric. A reflective photometer is used to quantitatively measure to reaction color. A site-specific calibration is needed to determine the ratio of PCP to carrier solvent. This ratio is then used to correct the results from the reflective photometer. The test kit showed greater comparability to the confirmatory data when PCP concentrations in samples were below 100 ppm.
