Method 29

Enflurane and Halothane

This method describes the sample collection and analysis of enflurane and halothane. The sample is collected on two standard size charcoal tubes connected in series for each sample. Samples are desorbed with carbon disulfide and analyzed by gas chromatography (GC) using a flame ionization detector (FID).
