Cryogenic oven-trapping (COT) with capillary GC has been successfully applied to analysis of chloroform, dichloromethane, trichloroethylene, diethyl ether, the components of solvent thinner (ethyl acetate, benzene, n-butanol, toluene, and others), xylene isomers, cyanide, ethanol, hexanes, general anesthetics, and styrene in human body fluids. This COT-GC technique was compared with headspace solid-phase microextraction (SPME) coupled with GC for some volatile organic compounds (VOC); for all… CONTINUE READING
