EPA Method 625:
Semivolatile Organic Compounds by Isotope Dilution GC/MS
A 1 L aliquot of sample is adjusted to pH >11 and extracted in a separatory funnel with three 60 mL portions of methylene chloride or with 200-500 mL methylene chloride in a continuous extraction apparatus. The pH of the sample is then adjusted to
This method is applicable to the determination of extractable organics in municipal and industrial discharges.

(1) Contaminants from glassware.(2) Matrix interferences that are co-extracted with sample.(3) Base/Neutral extraction can result in loss of phenol, 2-methylphenol, and 2,4-dimethylphenol.(4) Resolution of the following compound pairs is not sufficient using the packed columns and conditions described in the method: (a) Anthracene and Phenanthrene (b) Chrysene and Benzo(a)anthracene (c) Benzo(b)fluoranthene and Benzo(k)fluoroanthene.
reagent blanks (RB), quality control samples (QCS), matrix spikes (MS)
Maximum Holding Time:
7 days (prior to extraction) 40 days (after extraction)
The precision and accuracy values were determined using regression equations derived from a 15 laboratory validation study. The study determined analytes using reagent water, drinking water, surface water, and industrial wastewaters with additions at six concentrations over the range 5 to 1300 ug/L. Single operator precision, overall precision, and accuracy were found to be directly related to the concentration of the parameter and essentially independent of the sample matrix.
