A Novel, Versatile Polymeric Sorbent for Solid Phase Extraction of Various Organic Compounds in Water
30 Jul 2014
This application describes the use of a novel, versatile polymeric sorbent for the solid phase extraction (SPE) of a range of organic compounds. Depending on the extraction protocol used analysts are able to extract acids, bases, and neutrals including non‐polar and even some mid‐polar to polar compounds. Several of the compounds extracted are typically not well retained by silica‐based sorbents, such as C8 and C18. The analytical performance of this new sorbent is demonstrated by selectively extracting acidic compounds (phenols), neutrals (explosives, organophosphorus pesticides, triazine herbicides, and other polar/non‐polar compounds), and bases.
