They probably found that the solvent-solvent extraction is the best way to go. An official website of the United States government. Yes it is an in-house method, but I don’t really see a difference in shaking a sample in a separation funnel or in a centrifuge tube Do you extract just once or many times? For me here in Belgium the EPA numbers don’t say a lot since we don’t use them. I know that many EPA methods take the “prove it and use it” approach, just wanted to know if anyone succeeded in adapting it for wide usage.
We do approx samples incl extracted calibration curve and QC on a single day by 1 analist.
I then use e;a injections to improve sensitivity. Sounds quite a bit simpler, but is it a in-house method, or is there some kind of known method associated with it?
Solvent extraction of beer doesn’t work very well either. You may need a PDF reader to view some of the files on this page.
I have run a Demonstration of Capability study using ml boston round bottles as the separatory funnel and shaking on a horizontal shaker table. I have sent an email to the MICE site to ask if the sample bottle can be considered equivalent to a separatory funnel so we can claim EPA Method C as the extraction method, or if we have to 33510c EPA Method microscale rpa method with modification to larger vial size.
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 eap I use a pipette to remove the organic layer.
