Standard Test Method for Determination of Thiodiglycol in Soil Using Pressurized Fluid Extraction Followed by Single Reaction Monitoring Liquid Chromatography/Tandem Mass Spectrometry (LC/MS/MS)
|Publication Date:||1 January 2011|
This procedure covers the determination of thiodiglycol (TDG) in soil using pressurized fluid extraction (PFE). A commercially available PFE system2 was used, followed by analysis using liquid chromatography (LC), and detected with tandem mass spectrometry (MS/MS). TDG is qualitatively and quantitatively determined by this method. This method adheres to single reaction monitoring (SRM) mass spectrometry.
The Method Detection Limit (MDL) and Reporting Range for TDG are listed in Table 1.
The MDL is determined following the Code of Federal Regulations, 40 CFR Part 136, Appendix B.
The reporting limit (RL) is calculated from the concentration of the Level 1 calibration standard as shown in Table 4. The RL for this method is 200 ppb. Reporting range concentrations are calculated from Table 4 concentrations assuming a 5 μL injection of the lowest level calibration standard, 5 g sample, and a 2 mL final extract volume.
Units-The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as standard. No other units of measurement are included in this standard.
This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
2 The PFE system that was used to develop this test method was Accelerated Solvent Extraction (ASEt) which is a patented technique by Dionex, Sunnyvale, CA 94088.
