Ionic Liquid-Based Single-Drop Microextraction of Chlorobenzenes

March 4, 2009

A research group from the University of Valencia (Valencia, Spain) and the University of Alicante (Alicante, Spain) used ionic liquid?based single-drop microextraction followed by gas chromatography (GC) to analyze chlorobenzenes in real water samples.

A research group from the University of Valencia (Valencia, Spain) and the University of Alicante (Alicante, Spain) used ionic liquid–based single-drop microextraction followed by gas chromatography (GC) to analyze chlorobenzenes in real water samples. The method involves thermal desorption of the analytes from the ionic liquid droplet to the GC system using a commercially available thermodesorption system. They determined 10 chlorobenzenes in water samples, with RSDs of 2–17% and limits of detection of 1–4 ng/L.
