Phenols are a class of very common chemical compounds. They can be found in soils underlying chemical storage depots, gas plants, soils that receive continuous wastes and decomposition of organic waste, and as a result of the combustion of wood. The environmental pollution of soil by phenols is a major environmental concern. They represent a danger to the environment and to human health. In fact, phenols are hematotoxic and hepatotoxic, provoke mutagenesis and carcinogenesis towards humans and other living organisms.
For this reason U.S. EPA takes into account the analysis of phenols in a variety of methods including EPA Method 8041.
The following analysis demonstrates a Fast GC Analysis for eleven target compounds in less than five minutes showing a method with High Data Accuracy maintaining the Integrity of the Sample.
