I understand your frustration. Fri Jul 20, 9: But we are a drinking water lab and this method is under accreditation. The only option on your profile is Yahoo messenger and that does not seem to work.

Liquid/Liquid extractionis there another verisatile way? – Chromatography Forum

Thu Apr 18, 2: A measured volume of sample, usually 1 liter, at a specified pHis serially extracted with methylene chloride using a separatory funnel. Sun Jul 03, In the event of an environmental emergency imminently threatening the safety of human life or where necessary to protect certain property, the EPA website will be updated with appropriate information.

Due to a lapse in appropriations, EPA websites will not be regularly updated. Please contact us for assistance. Latest Blog Posts from Separation Science. This document outlines the procedure for isolating water-insoluble and slightly soluble organic compounds from aqueous samples in preparation for a variety of chromatographic procedures.

It is actually better recoveries than we were getting on continuous liquid liquid extraction. Has anyone looked into validating EPA to use instead of ? The past is there to guide us into the future, not to dwell in. No warranty express or implied is made as to the website accuracy, completeness, or applicability such as the age of a method and whether or not it applies to your project.


I doubt that our lab will invest a lot of money into costly automation, but knowing the options is better than not. We don’t do liq-liq on waste water, but some of our surface waters aren’t much better I think.

Using the solvents listed in the Bottle Liquid Liquid Extraction procedure http: We compare our surrogate recoveries to the mean of the recovery found in our calibration which is made in drinking water.

My experience – albeit limited – with these standard methods is that the developers are usually a committee. This method describes a procedure for isolating organic compounds from aqueous samples. Follow us on Twitter: Jump to main content. In total there is 1 user online:: We’ve made some changes wpa EPA. SW Test Method C: Please call for availability. I have run a Demonstration of Capability study using ml boston round bottles as the fpa funnel and shaking on a horizontal shaker table.

SW-846 Test Method 3510C: Separatory Funnel Liquid-Liquid Extraction

I’ve just recieved the large VOA vials needed forwish me luck. It still is liq-liq, but it is a lot easier than working with seperation funnels etc. No registered users and 1 guest.

Mon Jan 07, 8: You may need a PDF reader to view some of the files on this page. However, if they didn’t. The test methods page continues to expand and improve. I’ve tried researching for alternatives, but found none.

If you have suggestions for improvement, we would enjoy hearing from you. Have you given solid-phase extraction a shot?

The shaker table is a modification that I did to speed up the process. You should be able to find their how to video on YouTube. Shaking for 10 minutes each time then 10 minutes in a centrafuge definitely helps separate the layers and for actual samples almost necessary for emulsion breaking I use a pipette to remove the organic layer. Contact Us to ask a question, provide feedback, or report a problem.


The extract is dried, concentrated if necessary 3501c, and, as necessary, exchanged into a solvent compatible with the cleanup or determinative method to be used. The in house method mentioned above is close enough, but we’re an 3501c accredited laboratory and I was wondering how feasible it is. We do approx samples incl extracted calibration curve eap QC on a single day by 1 analist.

Please note that all information on the EPA website may not be up to date, and transactions and inquiries submitted to the EPA website may not be processed or responded to until 3510v are enacted. If a separatory funnel can be defined as not having to include a stopcock at the bottom then either method should be applicable.

Those I think would be even better than doing the extraction in the bottle, just for purposes of centrifuging since you have to limit the centrifuge speed on the bottles to prevent breaking them. This method is applicable to the isolation and concentration of water-insoluble 3150c slightly water-soluble organics in preparation for a variety of chromatographic procedures.

Extraction pH is dependent on the target analytes, e.
