Abstract: A microwave-assisted solvent extraction (MASE) technique was developed for the quantitative extraction of gasoline- and diesel-range petroleum hydrocarbons (PHs) from soil and marine sediment samples. The influence of different extracting solvents, extraction temperature and duration of extraction on the recoveries of PHs was evaluated using a two-level orthogonal array design (OAD) with a OA8(27) matrix. Gas chromatographic-mass spectrometry (GC-MS) in multiple selective ion monitoring (MSIM) mode was used for the analysis of the PHs in environmental samples. The spiking range of the PHs in the environmental samples was between 1 to 1000 μg/g. Good recoveries (>80%) could be obtained for most of the PHs using the optimum MASE conditions. The limit of detection (LOD) achieved by the GC-MSMS-IM was 0.02 μg/g. A preliminary survey for the levels of PHs in marine sediment and soil samples from different parts of Singapore was carried out using the method.
