Application Note: Increasing Extraction Efficiency of Pesticides and Dioxins from Wet Samples Using a Novel Polymer During Accelerated Solvent Extraction
15 August 2014

This study presents the use of a novel new polymer for in-line drying of a wet sample for the analysis of organochlorine pesticides, and polyaromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) in different matrices. Thermo Scientific™ Dionex™ ASE™ Prep MAP is a proprietary polymer designed to remove moisture and increase extraction efficiencies from wet samples including soils, tissues and food products. This unique formulation allows moisture removal under a variety of ionic strength conditions and accelerated solvent extraction conditions. It is useful for in-cell extractions of trace level organics from a variety of moisture containing samples such as soil, sediments, animal tissue, fruits, and vegetables with no additional pre or post extraction steps.
