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 designed for use as a screening method with a typical reporting level of 0.1 %.
1.1.1 This compound list is a compilation of hazardous solvents and other constituents that are routinely seen in hazardous waste samples.
1.2 The scope of this test method may be expanded to include other volatile and semivolatile organic constituents.
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 Gas chromatographic methods are recommended for use only by, or under close supervision of, an experienced analyst.
1.4 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.
