Method 1617

Phenyl Ether by GC/FID

This method is designed for the determination of phenyl ether. The sample is collected on charcoal sorbent tubes, desorbed with carbon disulfide, and analyzed by GC/FID. The working range is 0.1 to 9 ppm (0.7 to 60 mg/m³) for a 10 L air sample. Better sensitivity may be achieved with a capillary column with appropriate adjustments in instrumental conditions. A DB-wax (polyethylene glycol) or equivalent is similar to the FFAP packed column. NOTE: This method revises Method S72.
