Optimized Analysis of Semi-volatile Organic Compounds (sVOCs) with EPA 8270E Using GC Triple Quadrupole MS (GC/TQ)
Agilent Technologies: Optimized Analysis of Semi-volatile Organic Compounds (sVOCs) with EPA 8270E Using GC Triple Quadrupole MS (GC/TQ)
This webinar will overview a sensitive method used to analyze semivolatile organic compounds (SVOCs) on an Agilent 7000E Gas Chromatograph/Triple Quadrupole (GC/TQ) Mass Spectrometer. The utilization of GC/TQ instrumentation for analysis of SVOCs offers significant advantages:
Excellent selectivity afforded by Multiple Reaction Monitoring (MRM) mode results in faster batch review and increased confidence due to the elimination of matrix interferences often present when using GC/MS acquisition modes; and
Better sensitivity enables smaller extraction volumes which improves sustainability, reduces waste, and decreases costs associated with sample preparation, solvent usage, and waste disposal.
Key analytical techniques which facilitated this work will be discussed.
Manufacturer’s recommended tune protocol for mass accuracy and resolution checks in accordance with US EPA Method 8270E will also be discussed.
