Abstract: THIS THESIS FOCUSES PRIMARILY ON THE CHALLENGE OF MAINTAINING ACCURACY AND PRECISION WITHIN POPULARLY USED MICROEXTRACTION TECHNIQUES THROUGH THE INCORPORATION OF FULL AUTOMATION, WITH EMPHASIS ON THE ANALYSIS OF ANALYTES OF GROWING ENVIRONMENTAL CONCERN. TO IMPROVE UPON THE RSD VALUES AND IN A BID TO REDUCE THE AMOUNT OF ORGANIC SOLVENT UTILIZED IN HOLLOW-FIBER MICROEXTRACTION, AUTOMATION OF 3-PHASE HOLLOW-FIBER LIQUID-PHASE MICROEXTRACTION (HF-(3)-LPME) FOR THE ANALYSIS OF TRICYCLIC ANTIDEPRESSANTS WAS DEVELOPED. A FULLY-AUTOMATED DISPERSION LIQUID-LIQUID MICROEXTRACTION (DLLME) TECHNIQUE IS REPORTED FOR THE ANALYSIS OF POLYBROMINATED DIPHENYL ETHERS IN ENVIRONMENTAL WATERS. A NEW VARIATION OF SINGLE-DROP MICROEXTRACTION (SDME) THAT OF BUBBLE-IN-DROP SINGLE-DROP MICROEXTRACTION (BID-SDME) IS DISCUSSED FOR THE ANALYSIS OF ORGANOCHLORINE PESTICIDES. THE RESULTS PRESENTED IN THIS THESIS SHOW THAT ALL THREE TECHNIQUES HAVE THE ABILITY TO BE COMPLETELY AUTOMATED, WITH NO MANUAL INTERVENTI
