To establish a gas chromatographic method for determination of halogenated alkanes and aromatic hydrocarbons including trichloromethane, 1,2-dichloroethane, carbon tetrachloride, benzene, toluene, ethylbenzene and xylene in the air of workplace. After the air samples collected with activated carbon tubes and desorbed with CS(2), the target toxicants were separated with FFAP capillary columns and detected with flame ionization detector. The coefficient of correlation was above 0.999 and the lowest detectable concentrations were 0.2 ∼ 3.6 mg/m(3) with the RSD of 1.2% ∼ 4.6%. The desorption efficiencies was 94.9% ∼ 100.7%. The method shows lower detection limit, high accuracy and precision. It is feasible for determination of the seven halogenated alkanes and aromatic hydrocarbons in the air of workplace.
