AS247: Full Method Validation of Polycyclic Aromatic Hydrocarbons (PAHs) In Waters Using the Element Robotic DiLLME Analyser


12th April 2021

A Dispersive Liquid-Liquid MicroExtraction (DiLLME) method has been successfully developed and validated to automate the extraction of polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons in a range of waters.

Using the sensitivity of the Agilent 5977B High efficiency Source, sample sizes were reduced to 9 mL whilst achieving very low limits of detection.

This automated solution provides significant advantages, such as maintaining consistent precision over the manual or semi-manual liquid extraction techniques typically used for sample preparation.
