EPA Method 3550C:
ULTRASONIC EXTRACTION

Summary:
Low concentration procedure -- The sample is mixed with anhydrous sodium sulfate to form a free-flowing powder. The mixture is extracted with solvent three times, using ultrasonic extraction. The extract is separated from the sample by vacuum filtration or centrifugation. The extract is ready for final concentration, cleanup, and/or analysis.

Scope:
