Method 5519

Endrin by GC/ECD

This method is used for the detection of endrin. The sample is collected on cellulose ester membrane filters, extracted with toluene, and analyzed by GC with Ni electron capture detection. The working range is 0.01 to 0.33 mg/m³ for a 120 L air sample. Smaller concentrations can be detected if the desorption efficiency is satisfactory. The use of a capillary column, e.g., DB-1, may improve resolution and sensitivity. NOTE: This is a modification of the method of Hill and Arnold, and it replaces NIOSH Method S284.
