Method 525.2 describes the procedure to determine a full suite of low concentration semi-volatile organic compounds in drinking water using solid phase extraction (SPE) or liquid–solid extraction (LSE) techniques. The City of Fort Worth, Water Department implemented an automated SPE process for the analysis of semi-volatiles by EPA Method 525.2 using the Atlantic® C18 solid phase extraction disk. Ethyl acetate, methanol and water were used to condition the Atlantic C18 disk prior to the extraction step. The extraction solvents used were a 1:1 mixture of methylene chloride and ethyl acetate. Extracts were then analyzed by GC/MS using a splitless injection technique.

The City of Fort Worth, Water Department conducted an evaluation of the Atlantic™ solid phase extraction (SPE) C18 disks using EPA Method 608. This application note describes the procedure to determine low ppb levels of organochlorine pesticides and PCBs in wastewater. This procedure used methylene chloride as the primary extraction solvent, followed by a hexane solvent exchange. Extracts were then analyzed by GC/ECD using a pressure pulse injection technique.

Method 1657 describes the procedure to determine low ppb levels of organophosphorus pesticides in municipal and industrial wastewater.
The City of Fort Worth Water Department implemented Automated SPE for the analysis of organophosphorous pesticides by EPA Method 1657, using the Atlantic™ C18 solid phase extraction disk.
The Biotage® Horizon 4790 Automated Extraction System with Envision®
Platform controller, and the DryVap® Automated Drying
and Concentration System were used in this application note.

The second unregulated contaminant monitoring regulation (UCMR2) program was developed to monitor US drinking water sources for currently unregulated compounds. EPA Method 527 is categorized under List 1; Assessment Monitoring in the UCMR2 program. It focuses on a wide range of semi volatile organic contaminants including pesticides that were deferred during the first UCMR, flame retardants, and pyrethroid pesticides. This application for EPA Method 527 employs SPE with analysis by gas chromatography / mass spectrometry (GC/MS).

The formation of diarylethers by reacting an arylhalide and phenol is usually a reaction demanding long reaction times, high temperatures and strong bases, in order to obtain acceptable yield. The substitution patent of the electrophile and the nucleophile affects the reaction times mostly. A sterically hindered electrophile and a strongly deactivated nucleophile as outlined in the (Scheme 1) below, gives a very low yield (13 %) at conventional reflux for 2 weeks.1,2 Remainder was
recovered starting material. We have previously reported the dramatically shortened reaction time to 1 hour along with improved yield running the reaction outlined in the Scheme by heating by microwaves.

This poster demonstrates that a large urine panel, comprised of 43 DOAs, from multiple drug classes, can be simultaneously screened by mixed-mode cation exchange SPE (using EVOLUTE EXPRESS CX 96 well plates) despite their disparate intermolecular traits, by thoughtfully selecting appropriate organic wash and elution conditions that simultaneously enable sample isolation and detection along with minimizing sample matrix effects.
The extraction method is automated using the Biotage® Extrahera™ Automated sample Preparation Platform.

One of the most common flash purification challenges is
dealing with hard-to-dissolve crude samples. Because polar
solvents cause poor chromatographic results when used as
injection solvents in normal-phase flash chromatography, other
sample load options are needed.

Removing water with a membrane rather than the older technique of passing the solvent through a column of sodium sulfate (Na2SO4) brings several advantages. The most important analytically is that the membrane will not adsorb analytes or contaminate the extract with matrix or other potential interferences.
