Analytical methods were developed for the determination of cyanide and of total phenolic compounds in solid/semi-solid samples of environmental importance. A number of methods were reviewed, selected methods were empirically evaluated, and the most promising methods were optimized and validated by application to ten solid/semi-solid matrices. Each method consisted of two steps: isolation of the analyte and quantification of the analyte. Isolation studies were performed using radiolabeled cyanide and radiolabeled phenolic compounds to spike representative matrices.
