AN333: Accelerated Solvent Extraction (ASE) of Polychlorinated Biphenyls from Polyurethane Foam Adsorbent Cartridges
DescriptionASE is included in the SW-846 Methods as U.S. EPA Method 3545 (SW-846 Update III). This method is approved for the extraction of pesticides (OCP, OPP), herbicides, semivolatiles (BNAs), and PCBs from soils, sediments, and sludges. The work reported here discusses the use of ASE for the extraction of PCBs from PUF cartridges. Extraction of PCB congeners and Aroclor® mixtures were performed from two different cartridge sizes. In addition to extraction of the cartridges after sampling, the ASE method described herein can be used to clean the PUFs prior to use.
