EPA Method 3610B:

This method describes procedures for alumina cleanup of solvent extracts of environmental samples. It provides the option of using either traditional column chromatography techniques or solid-phase extraction cartridges. Generally, the traditional column chromatography technique uses larger amounts of adsorbent and, therefore, has a greater cleanup capacity.

Alumina is a highly porous and granular form of aluminum oxide. It is available in three pH ranges (basic, neutral, and acidic) for use in chromatographic cleanup procedures. It is used to separate analytes from interfering compounds of a different chemical polarity.
