The goal of the research was to develop a heated purge and trap method that could be used in conjunction with SW-846 method 8240 for the analysis of volatile, water soluble Appendix VIII analytes. The developed method was validated according to a partial single laboratory method validation test to determine its performance characteristics using mass spectrometric detection. A group of 33 polar analytes comprising selected aldehydes, ketones, alcohols, ethers, nitriles, a thiol and 9 nitrogen bases were examined. The eight compounds found suitable for analysis for heated purge and trap were: acrolein, methacrylonitrile, acrylonitrile, acetonitrile, 2-butanone, 1,4-dioxane, isobutanol and propionitrile.
