General description

Supelpak-2 is purified Amberlite XAD-2® that has been cleaned to meet and exceed US EPA-recommended criteria for purity, as outlined in Level I Environmental Assessment Procedures Manual. It is the best resin to use for standard air sampling methods requiring resin tested for background TCO (total chromatographic organics) level. Packaged in glass containers.


Supelpak-2 was used as adsorbent in extraction procedure and these extracts were analysed using GC-MS, GC-FTIR, proton NMR and GC-NPD
