Feasibility Research on Alternative Approaches for Sampling and Extraction Methods in the TO-4A Method for Pesticides in Ambient Air with Analysis by GC/MS and LC/MS/MS
Ulrich, E., J. Starr, AND T. Slagle. Feasibility Research on Alternative Approaches for Sampling and Extraction Methods in the TO-4A Method for Pesticides in Ambient Air with Analysis by GC/MS and LC/MS/MS. U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, Washington, DC, EPA/600/R-15/039, 2015.
The National Exposure Research Laboratory’s (NERL’s) Human Exposure and Atmospheric Sciences Division (HEASD) conducts research in support of EPA’s mission to protect human health and the environment. HEASD’s research program supports Goal 1 (Clean Air) and Goal 4 (Healthy People) of EPA’s strategic plan. More specifically, our division conducts research to characterize the movement of pollutants from the source to contact with humans. Our multidisciplinary research program produces Methods, Measurements, and Models to identify relationships between and characterize processes that link source emissions, environmental concentrations, human exposures, and target-tissue dose. The impact of these tools is improved regulatory programs and policies for EPA.
This compilation of methods is the result of a Regional Methods project between the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency Region 4 and the EPA’s Office of Research and Development. The research leading to these methods was conducted in response to an observed need to update an EPA compendium method to use the best currently available technology and incorporate green chemistry concepts. The purpose of this research was to evaluate the feasibility of a new procedure for sampling and analysis of pesticides in ambient air.
