AN313: Extraction of PAHs from Environmental Samples by Accelerated Solvent Extraction (ASE)
DescriptionAccelerated Solvent Extraction (ASE) is a new extraction method that significantly streamlines sample preparation. ASE provides a more convenient, faster, and less solvent intensive method than previously available for extraction of PAHs from solid wastes. PAH recoveries by ASE are equivalent to other more solvent intense methods such as Soxhlet or sonication. ASE also avoids the multiple washing procedures associated with sonication. The procedures described here meet the requirements for extraction of PAHs from solid waste in U.S. EPA Method 3545.
