EPA Method 5021A:
VOLATILE ORGANIC COMPOUNDS IN VARIOUS SAMPLE MATRICES USING EQUILIBRIUM HEADSPACE ANALYSIS

Summary:
This method is a general purpose method for the preparation of volatile organic compounds (VOCs) in soil/sediment, solid waste, aqueous and water-miscible liquid samples for determination by gas chromatography (GC) or gas chromatography/mass spectrometry (GC/MS). The method is applicable to a wide range of organic compounds that have sufficiently high volatility to be effectively removed from samples using an equilibrium headspace procedure.

Scope:
Determinative analysis is performed using the appropriate GC or GC/MS method.
