Description: Special Report
Abstract: Vapor fortification, an alternative method for spiking soils with volatile organic compounds for quality assurance/quality control, was improved by minimizing the effects of numerous variables. The procedure developed resulted in average analyte concentrations for triplicate test samples that were not significantly different among three separate fortification treatments, and had relative standard deviations within each treatment of less than 9%, for three of the four analytes tested. The advantages of using vapor fortification instead of the conventional liquid injection methods are discussed.
