Summary:
A sample of PVC is collected, and an aliquot is dissolved in either tetrahydrofuran or N,Ndimethylacetamide. The dissolved sample is injected directly into a chromatograph. All volatile material in the sample evaporates into the carrier gas stream of the chromatograph, and is analyzed for vinyl chloride content.
