Analysis of Semivolatile Organic Compounds SVOC with Agilent Intuvo GC
This application note demonstrates the suitability of the Agilent Intuvo 9000 GC for the analysis of SVOC, a common environmental analysis. The Intuvo 9000 GC can easily meet the performance requirements as specified by US EPA method 8270D.
Gas chromatography/mass spectrometry is a workhorse for the analysis of semivolatile organic compounds in environmental samples. The Agilent Intuvo 9000 GC represents a significant advancement in gas chromatography, and provides a number of advantages for semivolatile analysis. This Application Note demonstrates the performance of the Intuvo 9000 GC for the analysis of semivolatiles based upon the specifications of USEPA method 8270D. Included in this study is an evaluation of the Intuvo during repetitive injections of a composite soil extract to gauge instrument durability under conditions modeling a high‑throughput environmental laboratory.
