A New Rapid, Simple and Efficient Extraction Method of Semi Volatile Organic Compounds from Soil Matrices

The analysis of semi volatile organic compounds (SVOCs) in soil matrices and other environmental solid samples encompasses two processes defined under the SW-846 methods: sample extraction and quantification of the analytes of interest. Due to the persistent nature of these compounds there is a constant concern of SVOCs in our soil, and the environment as a whole. The extraction of SVOCs from solid matrices can be challenging given the vast classes of chemicals in this group and sample types. Widely implemented techniques do not offer an extraction method that is rapid, simple, and efficient, which are all crucial to the modern environmental lab. The EDGE extraction system offers a new take on the processes of pressurized fluid extraction in adherence to US EPA 3545A. The Shimadzu GCMS-2020NX is top of the line Single quadrupole GCMS system able to reach detection limits into the low parts per billion levels for most analytes in EPA 8270. This work demonstrates the performance of the system for the analysis of selected solid matrices.
