    Abstract

    Solid-phase microextraction (SPME) has been adapted for the analysis of gasoline in fire debris. Compared to traditional passive headspace concentration (activated charcoal strip), the SPME method presented here was found to be faster, simpler and have a higher sensitivity. This method also eliminates the need for the highly flammable and toxic solvent carbon disulfide.
