A field test was conducted to determine the applicability of the SemiVOST method (SW-846 Method 0010 (Sampling), SW-846 Draft Method 3542 (Sample Preparation), and SW-846 Method 8270 (Analysis)) to semivolatile halogenated organic compounds listed in Title III of the 1990 Clean Air Act Amendments. Laboratory tests and two field tests had resulted in the development and evaluation of liquid dynamic spiking apparatus with procedures to demonstrate the field performance of halogenated analytes. This third field test evaluates the performance of halogenated analytes. This third field test evaluates the performance of the SemiVOST methodology at a stationary source with high moisture and complex organic stack emissions. The new guidance (Draft Method 3542) for sample preparation and recovery of the semivolatile organic compounds from the components of the Method 0010 sampling train was also evaluated. Analytical results showed acceptable recovery and precision for 25 of 28 analytes.
