Application Note: Sample Preparation for Trace Analysis of PAHs in Soil and Groundwater Using Syncore Analyst
3 February 2011

This application note analyses a selection of 16 different PAHs (EPA 16) by GC/MS (Agilent 6890 series with 5973 series MSD, column: Restek RTX 5 MS, 60 m, 0.25 mm, 0.25 μm film) in n-nonane (ACROS, p.a. quality). A comparison of a rotary evaporator with the Syncore® Analyst in evaporation of internal standards revealed up to 27% higher yields for the Analyst.
