The experimental design and results of a validations study for an analytical method to detect 29 halocarbons in water are described herein. In Method 601, the halocarbons are purged by an inert gas which is bubbled through the aqueous sample. The vapors are then trapped in a short column containing a suitable sorbent. The trapped components are then thermally desorbed onto the head of a chromatographic column and measured by means of halide specific detector. In this study, the 29 halocarbon compounds were divided into three separate mixes to minimize interferences from co-eluting peaks. The spiking solutions employed in the study contained the 29 halocarbons at six concentrations. Six water matrices were used in the study: distilled water, drinking water, and a surface water all supplied by the cooperating laboratories; and three industrial wastewaters supplied by the Monsanto Company. Statistical analyses and conclusions in this report are based on analytical data obtained by 20 collaborating laboratories.
