Method 11

1,1,2-Trichloroethane by GC/FID

This method is for the determination of 1,1,2-trichloroethane. The sample is collected on charcoal adsorbent, desorbed with carbon disulfide, and analyzed by GC using a flame ionization detector. Per the method, gas chromatography is by far the best analytical technique for determining trace amounts of 1,1,2-trichloroethane. It offers speed, sensitivity, and selectivity.
