This method is used to determine volatile organic compounds (VOCs) in a variety of water matrices. This method is applicable to nearly all types of water samples, including ground and surface water, aqueous sludge, wastewater, effluents, and sediments. This method describes equilibrium-based static headspace preparation for the determination of VOCs by gas chromatography/mass spectrometry (GC/MS). This method is applicable to quantitate a wide range of volatile organic compounds that have boiling points below 200 C.
