Microwave Extraction of Semi-Volatile Organic Compounds from Soil

Abstract

Soil is one of the most common matrices in which semi-volatile organic compounds (SVOCs) are present. The extraction of these compounds from soil can be a lengthy and tedious process. Microwave-assisted solvent extraction (MASE) is a proven technique that is fast, uses significantly less solvent than conventional techniques, and is cost effective. MASE is ideal for high-throughput labs dealing with hundreds of samples per day. The MARS 6™ with MARSXpress™ or MARSXpress Plus vessels combined with disposable glass liners meets the needs of high-throughput labs, allowing for a fast, clean, and user-friendly extraction process. Adhering to US EPA 3546, the MARS 6 also offers an efficient extraction of up to 40 samples simultaneously.
