Table 2 Slopes, correlation coefficients, and extracted percentages of the performed depletion experiments according to Zimmermann et al. [25] for samples containing 19 mL of water and an initial concentration of 50 ng L−1 PAHs for the first extraction by a classic SPME fiber (100 μm × 10 mm, 0.6 μL) and a PAL SPME Arrow (250 μm × 20 mm, 10.2 μL)
