ISO International Standard

Water quality — Determination of 16 polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAH) in water — Method using gas chromatography with mass spectrometric detection (GC-MS)

ISO 28540:2011 specifies a method for the determination of at least 16 selected PAH (see Table 1) in drinking water and ground water in mass concentrations above 0,005 µg/l and surface water in mass concentrations above 0,01 µg/l (for each individual compound).

ISO 28540:2011 can be used for samples containing up to 150 mg/l of suspended matter.

This method is, with some modification, also suitable for the analysis of waste water. It is possible that this method is applicable to other PAH, provided the method is validated for each case.
