    Scope - (Show below) - (Hide below)

    This Technical Specification specifies a method for the determination by gas chromatography with mass spectrometric detection (GC-MS) of polycyclic hydrocarbons and pesticide residues in drinking water and ground water at mass concentrations above 0,005µg/l and surface water and waste water at mass concentrations above 0,01µg/l (for each single compound).

    This method can apply to non-polar substances other than polycylic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAH) and pesticide residues. However, it is necessary to verify the applicability of this method for these compounds.

    NOTE1 A potentially suitable method for this verification is specified in ISO/TS13530.[3]

    This Technical Specification can be used for samples containing up to 150mg/l of suspended matter.

    NOTE2 Determination of PAH using GC-MS lies within the scope of ISO28540.[9]
