Extraction and gas chromatographic determination of chlorinated solvents in contaminated soil

Journal of Chromatography 623(1): 123-127

Extraction and gas chromatographic determination of chlorinated solvents in contaminated soil

The performance of a simple and reliable extraction method for the analysis of chlorinated solvents in soil was evaluated. The gas chromatographic analysis of the final extracts dissolved in acetone showed that the tested compounds (tetrachloroethylene, trichloroethylene, 1,1,1-trichloroethane and 1,2-dichloroethane) can be recovered with an efficiency ranging between 70 and 90% over a wide concentration range in the sample. The method can be used for in situ analysis of polluted areas, dumping sites, sediments and sands.
