This application note demontrates that the Biotage® fully automated extraction, drying and concentration systems used with the Atlantic™ HLB disk are capable of extracting PAH compounds from sea water.
Typical extraction times using the Biotage® Horizon 4790 range from 20 to 25 minutes while drying and concentration on the DryVap® with the DryDisk® took approximately 35 minutes.

In the laboratory many chemicals are used in small and larger volumes. Table 1 shows several of the typical kinds of analyses done for environmental compliance. Semivolatile organic compound extraction and evaporation can be a large source of solvent emission to the atmosphere if the solvent is allowed to go up the hood and is not recaptured.
