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.

Oftentimes it becomes necessary to test sea water for oil and grease analytes. Whether it is due to a controlled release of effluent water from a waste water treatment plant (usually during large rain storms) or a large oil spill, there is a need generated for a reliable, automated extraction and evaporation system.

Although not frequently a problem, recent incidents at sea have led to large amounts of crude oil being released and dispersed throughout the Gulf of Mexico. Originally presumed to be Louisiana Sweet Crude, sample testing later revealed a harsher form of crude containing a high amount of asphaltenes was actually being released. The differences are substantial, as Louisiana Sweet degrades more readily in nature than crude oil containing asphaltenes.

One of the most frequently desired quantities in environmental chemistry is the amount of diesel range organics (DROs) contained within a sample. The analysis of DROs is performed in almost every major environmental laboratory under the US EPA Method 80151 or by using the similar ISO 9377-22. This method is commonly used to determine the contamination of alkanes from C10 to C28 caused by leaking underground storage containers.
