Abstract
12 Laboratory and field results of the testing of a new, visible-range spectrometry utilizing the robust signals produced by Friedel-Crafts reaction compounds demonstrate the utility of a rapid, portable, and sensitive method of on-site analysis for petroleum substances in soil and water samples. Preliminary testing of the kits and spectrometer was performed at the U.S. Army Cold Regions Research and Engineering Laboratory (CRREL) in Hanover, NH. Specific field protocols for the sampling and handling of soils for gasoline range organics and diesel range organics were established for the field sampling, which was conducted at the U.S. Navy Facilities Engineering Service Center in Port Hueneme, CA. Co-located soil samples were collected and either split or homogenized for subsequent partitioning to provide samples for the on-site analysis by the field kit/spectrometer technology and for later analysis by off- site reference laboratories. Test kit colorimetric results are by visual and spectrometric methods, and are compared with reference laboratory results and CRREL analyses.
