The United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has proposed methods for analysis of volatile organic priority pollutants by gas chromatogrphy/mass spectrometry (GC/MS) using purge-and-trap techniques. The authors have evaluated 15 additional compounds which appear on the Hazardous Substance List and determined that these volatile organics are suitable for analysis by the proposed methods. For the most of the compounds evaluated, detection limits are less than 10 ppb. Recovery and precision measurements demonstrate that the method provides semiquantitative analysis for these volatile hazardous substances.
