EPA Method 8271:
Assay of Chemical Agents in Solid and Aqueous Samples by Gas Chromatograph/Mass Spectrometry, Electron Impact (GC/MS/EI)

Summary:
Method 8271 describes the analysis of chemical agents in aqueous and solid samples by gas chromatography/mass spectrometry (GC/MS). ?The method has been applied to concrete, charcoal, wood, water, brine, ash, coral, sand, and soil.? It involves introduction of the sample into gas chromatograph with mass spectrometric detector.? Samples can either be directly injected or desorbed from a solid sorbent.? Potential extraction techniques include Methods 3571 and 3572.? This determinative method may also be applicable to other chemically similar compounds and chemical agent degradation products.
