Organic Analysis (GC/LC)
General sample requirements
Compounds of interest must be extracted out of the samples and into solution.
Extracted samples must be free from particulates and precipitates.
Ideal solvents for GC methods are volatile solvents such as hexane, diethyl ether or dicholromethane.
For HPLC methods more polar solvents such as water and water mixtures, methanol and acetonitrile maybe used.
