1.1 This test method is used to determine qualitatively and quantitatively the presence of the following compounds in waste samples using gas chromatography. This test method is intended for use as a screening method with a typical reporting level of 0.1 %.
| Methyl Ethyl Ketone |
| 1,1,1-Trichloroethan||Isobutyl Benzene|
|Benzyl Chloride||Ethylene Glycol|
1.1.1 This compound list is a compilation of hazardous solvents and other constituents that are commonly seen in hazardous waste samples.
1.2 The scope of this test method may be expanded to include other volatile and semivolatile organic constituents such as but not limited to those described below, provided the intended use data quality objectives including sampling, recovery, and analytic data quality are demonstrated as satisfied by the user.
1.2.1 Hydrocarbon mixtures such as kerosene and mineral spirits.
1.2.2 High-boiling organics, defined here as compounds which boil above n-Hexadecane.
1.2.3 Other organics that the analyst is able to identify, either through retention time data or gas chromatography/mass spectrometric (GC/MS) analysis.
1.3 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, health, and environmental practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
1.4 This international standard was developed in accordance with internationally recognized principles on standardization established in the Decision on Principles for the Development of International Standards, Guides and Recommendations issued by the World Trade Organization Technical Barriers to Trade (TBT) Committee.
