Description / Abstract:

This guide describes recommended procedures for the collection, handling, and preparation of solid waste, soil, and sediment samples for subsequent determination of volatile organic compounds (VOCs). This class of compounds includes low molecular weight aromatics, hydrocarbons, halogenated hydrocarbons, ketones, acetates, nitriles, acrylates, ethers, and sulfides with boiling points below 200┬░ Celsius (C) that are insoluble or slightly soluble in water.

Methods of sample collection, handling, storage, and preparation for analysis are described.

This guide does not cover the details of sampling design, laboratory preparation of containers, and the analysis of the samples.

It is recommended that this guide be used in conjunction with Guide D4687.

The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as standard. No other units of measurement are included in this standard.

This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
