Methanol and Ethanol Analysis by Static Headspace Sampling Using the LGX50

The United States Environmental Protection Agency developed Method 8015 for the determination of nonhalogenated volatile organic compounds. Methanol and Ethanol are both listed in the method as compounds that can be determined using headspace sampling and Gas Chromatography/Flame Ionization Detection. This study will examine the headspace sampling of Methanol and Ethanol in water.
