Low Level Analysis of Dioxane1,4-Dioxane has been used for many years as a stabilizing agent in the production of chlorinated solvents to prevent breakdown during manufacturing processes. It is also present in many household products like soaps, shampoos, baby lotion and cosmetics.

Over the past few years 1,4-Dioxane has garnered increased attention due to it’s presence in groundwater at several California locations and because there is little scientific data available on the longterm effects on human health. An additional concern is that traditional remediation technologies used for sites contaminated with chlorinated solvents are ineffective at removing 1,4-Dioxane.1
