Title:APPROPRIATE SELECTION AND PERFORMANCE OF ANALYTICAL METHODS FOR WASTE MATRICES CONSIDERED TO BE "DIFFICULT-TO-ANALYZE"
RCRA Online Number:14317
Date:01/31/1996
To:Berlow
From:Johnson
Organization of Recipient:EPA
Description: This memo presents OSW’s position on waste matrices that industry considers to be “difficult to analyze”. Chemicals or materials that have been intentionally added under the claim of treatment (e.g., iron filings added to foundry sands) can cause interference with analysis. Proper selection of appropriate analytical method and analytical conditions are demonstrated by adequate recovery of spiked analytes and reproducible results. Analytical performance problems with difficult-to-analyze matrices can be corrected by using an alternative method or by modifying the analytical conditions.
