A gas chromatography-mass spectrometry isotope dilution (GC-MS ID) method was developed and tested for the determination of 14 common glycol ethers in consumer products. Stable isotope labelled standards, 2-methoxyethanol-D(7) and 2-butoxyethanol-(13)C(2) (CDN isotopes) were employed to enhance the accuracy and
