EPA Method 8121:
CHLORINATED HYDROCARBONS BY GAS CHROMATOGRAPHY: CAPILLARY COLUMN TECHNIQUE

Summary:
Method 8121 provides gas chromatographic conditions for the detection of ppb concentrations of chlorinated hydrocarbons in water and soil or ppm concentrations in waste samples. Prior to use of this method, appropriate sample extraction techniques must be used for environmental samples. Both neat and diluted organic liquids may be analyzed by direct injection. Spiked samples are used to verify the applicability of the chosen extraction technique to each new sample type. Analysis is accomplished by gas chromatography utilizing an instrument equipped with wide bore capillary columns and single or dual electron capture detectors.

Scope:
Method 8121 describes the determination of chlorinated hydrocarbons in extracts prepared from environmental samples and RCRA wastes. It describes wide-bore open-tubular, capillary column gas chromatography procedures using both single column/single detector and dual-column/dual-detector approaches.
