Dioxin Databases, Methods and Tools


  • Method 8280B (water, soil, other, Rev 2, Feb 2007) is appropriate for the detection and quantitative measurement of 2,3,7,8-tetrachlorodibenzo-p-dioxin (2,3,7,8-TCDD), 2,3,7,8-tetrachlorodibenzofuran (2,3,7,8-TCDF), and the 2,3,7,8-substituted penta-, hexa-, hepta-, and octachlorinated dibenzo-p-dioxins (PCDDs) and dibenzofurans (PCDFs) (Figure 1) in water (at part-per-trillion concentrations),soil, fly ash, and chemical waste samples, including still bottom, fuel oil, and sludge matrices (at part-per-billion concentrations) by HR-GC/MS.
