Environmental Analysis


Certain substituted aromatic amines (anilines and benzidines) are known to possess high toxicological potential. They are classical environmental pollutants by virtue of their high degree of water solubility and the large amounts produced annually in the chemical industry for the synthesis of dyes, pesticides and pharmaceuticals.

The present paper describes a method for the determination of at least thirty-one of these compounds at lower Μg/l or Μg/kg (ppb) ranges in water or sediment samples.

Capillary column gas chromatography is employed with NFI- or MS-detection.

Dedicated clean-up procedures are described for the substituted anilines and benzidines in aqueous and sedimentary matrices. In addition, quality assurance aspects of the individual single component identification by NFI- or MS-detection are discussed.
