Water quality -- Determination of polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAH) -- Part 1: Determination of six PAH by high-performance thin-layer chromatography with fluorescence detection after liquid-liquid extraction
The screening method (method A) described excludes those samples containing less than 20 % of the referenced limit values.
The quantitative method (method B) described has a working range of 40 ng/l to 240 ng/l (sum of 6 PAH). Higher concentrations may be determined by using a smaller aliquot of the sample.
With some modifications, this method is also applicable for the analysis of ground waters and moderately polluted surface waters.
