Analysis of Wastewater Effluent Samples to Identify Toxic Chemicals Using the High-Resolution Agilent 7250 GC/Q-TOF
Application Note Feb 04, 2020
Identification of toxic chemicals in wastewater effluents is important to improving environmental water quality of downstream ecosystems. Conventional targeted analysis approaches are often not enough to identify the source of toxicity due to their limited scope.
Comprehensive screening, often with non-targeted analysis, can help address this issue and lead to a deeper understanding of the possible cause of toxicity.
In this app note, discover how a GC/Q-TOF workflow can effectively identify pesticides and pollutants in wastewater, using a combination of:
- Targeted quantitation
- Suspect screening
- Non-targeted screening
