The development of a determination method for MTBE (methyl tertiary-butyl ether) in water solution

The purpose has been to develop a GC-MS method, based on the enrichment of MTBE together with other volatile organic compounds (e.g. benzene, toluene, ethyl benzene, xylenes) from the head-space over the aqueous sample.

The method combines high sensitivity with higher accuracy and certainty of measurement, and can be furthermore automated, which may allow a higher throughput of the samples.

This research project has been financially supported by the Austrian Research Promotion Agency Ltd. (FFG).
