3 Principle
Use the n-pentane solution that contains internal standard substance to extract benzene, toluene, ethylbenzene and xylene in the sample; use the gas
chromatography-mass spectrometry method to determine the content of
benzene, toluene, ethylbenzene and xylene in the extract; then, calculate the residual amount of benzene, toluene, ethylbenzene, and xylene in the sample. 4 Reagents
Except for special requirements, analytical reagents shall be used.
4.1 Reagents
4.1.1 N-hexane (C6H14), Super Pure grade or pesticide residue grade.
4.1.2 N-pentane (C5H12), chromatographic grade.
4.1.3 Benzene (C6H6), purity ???99%.
4.1.4 Toluene (C7H8), purity ???99%.
4.1.5 Ethylbenzene (C8H10), purity ???99%.
4.1.6 O-xylene (o-C8H10), purity ???99%.
4.1.7 M-xylene (m-C8H10), purity ???99%.
4.1.8 P-xylene (p-C8H10), purity ???99%.
4.1.9 2-hexanone (internal standard), if other substances are used as internal standard, the applicability shall be verified.
4.2 Preparation of internal standard solution
4.2.1 Internal standard stock solution: weigh 0.1 g of 2-hexanone (4.1.9) (accurate to 0.1 mg) in a 50 mL volumetric flask; use n-hexane (4.1.1) to dilute to the mark; mix well, to obtain an internal standard stock solution whose concentration is 2 mg/mL. Seal and store the internal standard stock solution in a refrigerator at 0 ??C ~ 4 ??C; the validity period is 3 months.
4.2.2 Internal standard solution: accurately pipette 2.5 mL of internal standard stock solution (4.2.1) into a 50 mL volumetric flask; use n-hexane (4.1.1) to dilute to the mark; mix well to obtain an internal standard solution whose concentration is 100 ??g/mL. Seal and store the internal standard solution in a refrigerator at 0 ??C ~ 4 ??C; the validity period is 1 month.
4.3 Preparation of standard solution
4.3.1 Mixed standard stock solution: respectively weigh 0.1 g of benzene (4.1.3), toluene (4.1.4), ethylbenzene (4.1.5), o-xylene (4.1.6), m-xylene (4.1.7), p- xylene (4.1.8) (accurate to 0.1 mg) in the 100 mL volumetric flasks; use n- hexane (4.1.1) to dissolve them and dilute to the mark; mix well, to obtain the mixed standard stock solution, of which the concentration of each component is 1 mg/mL, respectively. Seal and store the mixed standard stock solution in a refrigerator at 0 ??C ~ 4 ??C; the validity period is 3 months.
4.3.2 Mixed standard solution: use n-hexane (4.1.1) to gradually dilute the mixed standard stock solution (4.3.1) to obtain a mixed standard solution whose concentration is 5 ??g/mL. Formulate this solution when needed.
Perform selective ion scanning on the standard working solution; calculate the peak area ratio of benzene, toluene, ethylbenzene, and xylene in each standard solution to the internal standard 2-hexanone; draw the standard working curve of concentration-to-peak area ratio of benzene, toluene, ethylbenzene and xylene. The standard working curve shall be straight line relationship; the correlation coefficient shall be R2>0.99.
A standard working curve shall be made for each test. After every 20 samples, add a medium-concentration standard working solution. If the measured value differs from the original value by more than 10%, the standard working curve shall be made again.
6.5 Sample determination
Measure the sample solution (6.2) according to the instrument test conditions; repeat the measurement twice for each sample. At the same time, make a set of blanks for each batch of samples.
7 Calculation and expression of results
Calculate the residual amount (X) of benzene, toluene, ethylbenzene, p-xylene, m-xylene and o-xylene in the sample according to Formula (1):
Where:
X -- the residual amount of benzene, toluene, ethylbenzene, p-xylene, m-xylene and o-xylene in the sample, in milligrams per kilogram (mg/kg);
c -- the concentration of benzene, toluene, ethylbenzene, p-xylene, meta- xylene and o-xylene in the sample solution that is read from the standard working curve, in micrograms per milliliter (??g/mL);
c0 -- the concentration of benzene, toluene, ethylbenzene, p-xylene, m-xylene and o-xylene in the blank test that is read from the standard working curve, in micrograms per milliliter (??g/mL);
m -- sample mass, in grams (g).
The final residual amount of xylene in the sample is the sum of the residual amounts of p-xylene, m-xylene and o-xylene.
Take the average of two parallel determinations as the final determination result, accurate to 0.01 mg/kg.
