Useful only as a qualitative tool, the GC-MS/MS enables ultralow detection levels in even the most complex matrices. This technique is used for the same compounds as standard GC but where the required reporting limits are beyond the reach of the standard GC-MS system.
Typical compounds and groups analysed by GC-MS/MS include:
- Phenols/cresols/xylenols (low level)
- SVOCs (low level)
- PCBs (low level)
- PAHs (low level)
- Brominated flame retardants (low level)
