Abstract: Static liquid-phase microextraction, with subsequent analysis by gas chromatography-electron-capture detection, has been applied to extract eight organochlorine pesticides from water. A conventional microsyringe was used to extract analytes from water samples over a concentration range of 0.05-100 μg/l. Factors relevant to the extraction process were investigated. The sensitivity of the method was enhanced with agitation, and increasing the extraction temperature, of the sample solution. Concentration factors of >50-fold were easily achieved within 25 min of extraction. The analytical data exhibited a relative standard deviation (RSD) range of 3.2% (lindane) to 10.7% (methoxychlor) for the eight pesticides; most RSD values were under 7%. Water samples collected from a reservoir, and from tap water in a chemical laboratory were analyzed using the procedure. © 2001 Elsevier Science B.V.
