The coated hollow fiber membrane was placed in a vial containing the sample, and the target compounds extracted via manual shaking of the vials at the site of sample collection. For each extraction, two fibers were used. After extraction, the fibers with the adsorbed analytes were brought back to the laboratory for further processing. Care was taken to preserve the integrity of the analytes and to avoid contamination during transport; after extraction, the fibers were carefully removed and placed in air-tight crimper vials which were stored in an ice-box. The analytes were desorbed by solvent in the laboratory and analyses were carried out using gas chromatography/mass spectrometry. This method was highly reproducible with relative standard deviations in the range of 1-9%. Recoveries from spiked water samples ranged from 83% to 98%. Low limits of detections between 0.04 and 0.21 ng l-1 were achieved. The extraction efficiency was compared with solid-phase microextraction. © 2006 Elsevier B.V.
