Standard Test Method for Determination of Nonylphenol, Bisphenol A, p-tert- Octylphenol, Nonylphenol Monoethoxylate and Nonylphenol Diethoxylate in Environmental Waters by Gas Chromatography Mass Spectrometry
|Publication Date:||15 June 2011|
This test method covers determination of nonylphenol (NP), nonylphenol ethoxylate (NP1EO), nonylphenol diethoxylate (NP2EO), octylphenol (OP), and bisphenol A (BPA) that are partitioned into organic solvent, separated using gas chromatography and detected with mass selective detection. These compounds or isomer mixtures are qualitatively and quantitatively determined by this method. This method adheres to selected ion monitoring mass spectrometry but full scan mass spectrometry has also been shown to work well under these conditions. Either analysis may be used.
The method detection limit (MDL) reporting limit (RL) for NP, NP1EO, NP2EO, OP, and BPA are listed in Table 1.
The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as standard. No other units of measurement are included in this standard.
