In on-site environmental applications, representative sampling and proper replication are essential. For these reasons, recent work in thin-film solidphase microextraction has focused on the development of unique holders and customized samplers that are tailored for distinct sampling environments. Here, we explore the latest developments.

The environmental analysis community sorely needs a system by which new and up-to-date methods are more easily developed, shared, and adopted.
April 01, 2019
In this interview, Thomas Letzel of the Technical University of Munich considers the current state of water analysis, looking at recommended techniques, the
growth of nontargeted screening, and multi-disciplinary collaboration.
April 01, 2018
James Stry of FMC Agricultural Solutions talks about best practices for developing robust environmental analysis methods, including simplifying sample preparation and dealing with matrix effects.
December 01, 2017
In the environmental analytical chemistry literature, the topic of matrix interferences and matrix effects has not been addressed in a fundamental way. Here, we examine which methods appear to have a tendency for matrix interference and suggest ways to reduce the problem.
