Haloethers are pollutant compounds not occurring naturally; their presence in the environment is entirely anthropogenic. They are used as solvents, chemical intermediates, soil fumigants, pesticides, fungicides, etc.
Several haloethers have been found to be biodegradable in soil, while others are persistant. In the absence of the degradation process, these compounds are expected to leak to groundwater.
Haloethers are under investigation as a possible cause for different types of human deseases.
EPA method 8111 provides gas chromatographic conditions for the detection of ppb concentration of haloethers in water and soil or ppm concentration in waste samples. These regulatory requirements are achieved in the following analysis rapidly, productively and effectively.
