Method EPA Method 8315
Title DETERMINATION OF CARBONYL COMPOUNDS BY HPLC
Abstract Method 8315 provides (HPLC-UV) conditions for the detection of free carbonyl compounds in various matrices by derivatization with 2,4 dinitrophenylhydrazine (DNPH). The method utilizes two different sets of conditions: Option 1 has been shown to work well with one set of analytes for aqueous samples, soil or waste samples, and stack samples collected by Method 0011. Option 2 works well for another set of analytes in indoor air samples collected by Method 0100.
