Method 5021

o-Terphenyl by GC/FID

This method is for the determination of o-terphenyl. The sample is collected on PTFE membrane filters, desorbed in carbon disulfide, followed by GC/FID analysis. The working range is 0.5 to 60 mg/m³ for a 30-L air sample. The method has been tested only with o-terphenyl. Note: This revised Method S27.
