HEDRICK, E. J., R. SLINGSBY, AND D. J. MUNCH. METHOD 332.0: DETERMINATION OF PERCHLORATE IN DRINKING WATER BY ION CHROMATOGRAPHY WITH SUPPRESSED CONDUCTIVITY AND ELECTROSPRAY IONIZATION MASS SPECTROMETRY. U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, Washington, DC, 2005.

Impact/Purpose:

The goal of this project is to develop a method for the analysis of perchlorate in drinking water with a method detection limit between 0.02 and 0.1 ug/L (ppb) and a minimum reporting limit between 0.1 and 0.5 ug/L (ppb). [Note: this effort focuses on development of a sensitive and accurate method for laboratory analysis of perchlorate in drinking water: a related NERL task under the RARE program, 12505, focuses on development of a screening method for use with source waters.]

Description:

This method is applicable to the identification and quantitation of perchlorate in raw and finished drinking waters. The approach used is ion chromatography with suppressed conductivity and electrospray ionization mass spectrometry (IC-ESI/MS)
