Title Nitroaromatics and Isophorone
Abstract A measured volume of sample, approximately one-liter, is extracted with methylene chloride using separatory funnel techniques. The extract is dried and exchanged to hexane during concentration to 1.0 mL by evaporation. Isophorone and nitrobenzene are measured by flame ionization gas chromatography (FIDGC). The dinitrotoluenes are measured by electron capture GC (ECGC).
