Title An alternative method for the analysis of phenol and o-, m-, and p-cresol by capillary GC/FID
Bibliographic information Nov. 1994, Vol.55, No.11, p.1051-1054. 16 ref.
Abstract A method for the sampling and simultaneous analysis of phenol, o-, m-, and p-cresol using XAD-7 as a sorbent for the collection of each analyte is described. Desorption was achieved with methanol followed by analysis of all samples using gas chromatography with flame ionization detection. Separation of all analytes was achieved on a Stabilwax-DA capillary column. The method provides a number of improvements over currently available methods.
