Abstract
U.S. EPA Method 8610, 'Total Aromatic by Ultraviolet Absorption' was evaluated in conjunction with U.S. EPA Method 3560, 'Reverse Phase Cartridge Extraction' for the separation and semi-quantitative determination of visible or ultraviolet absorbing organic compounds listed in Appendix VIII of the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA). The applicability of these methods was investigated in a variety of groundwater samples and method detection limit estimates were refined. Seven groundwater samples, supplied by ASTM Committee D-34 members, were evaluated for background UV absorbance, and duplicate sample extractions were used to simulate down-gradient versus up-gradient testing. Five Method 8610 analytes were evaluated for spike recoveries from both reagent water and a composite groundwater sample. Four analytes had good total recoveries from reagent water ranging from 79 to 108 percent with standard deviations (except one analyte) ranging from 1 to 5 percent. Spike recoveries for composited groundwater were not reproducible due to a significant variability associated with the presence of finely divided (<20 micron) particulate.
