USEPA Method 8260D is a procedure that uses Gas Chromatography and
Mass Spectrometry in order to determine Volatile Organic Compounds
(VOCs). There are several preparative methods used in conjunction with
this practice. USEPA Method 5030, for waters, and Method 5035, for
soils and waste, are the purge and trap preparative methods for volatile
organic analysis. This application will examine purge and trap sampling
of VOCs in water and soil matrices
