Separation Science, in association with Markes International, offers you the exclusive chance to take part in an upcoming webinar that will focus on a novel approach to the sampling and analysis of SVOCs such as polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs), phthalates and flame retardants in air and product emissions.
What does it cover?
This webinar will focus on a novel approach to the sampling and analysis of SVOCs such as polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs), phthalates and flame retardants in air. The method uses pumped sampling of air onto sorbent-packed tubes, followed by analysis using thermal desorption–GC–MS. The presentation will also cover a comparison with standard methods and the suitability of this method for test chamber methods, and indoor & outdoor air quality assessments will be discussed.
What will you learn?
You will learn how a new thermal desorption–GC protocol tailored specifically for PAHs, phthalates and flame retardants offers considerable benefits over existing solvent-based extraction methods for detecting low levels of these hazardous pollutants in air. A key focus will be on achieving the low detection limits needed for these compounds while minimising the problems caused by collection of large sample volumes.
Who should attend?
Environmental chemists with an interest in urban/industrial air monitoring, and specifically those currently using US EPA Method TO-13A for PAH analysis or standard SVOC reference methods such as ISO 12884 and EN ISO 16000-13. REGISTER FOR THIS WEBINAR>>
