EPA Method 3585:
WASTE DILUTION FOR VOLATILE ORGANICS

Summary:
Highly contaminated or highly complex samples may be diluted prior to analysis for volatiles using direct injection. One gram of sample is weighed into a capped tube or volumetric flask. The sample is diluted to 2.0 - 10.0 mL with n-hexadecane or other appropriate solvent. Diluted samples are injected into the GC or GC/MS for analysis.

Scope:
This method describes a solvent dilution of a non-aqueous waste sample prior to direct injection analysis. It is designed for use in conjunction with GC or GC/MS analysis of wastes that may contain organic chemicals at a concentration greater than 1 mg/kg and that are soluble in the dilution solvent. Method 3585 has adequate sensitivity to determine the regulatory concentrations of the Toxicity Characteristic (TC) Rule.
