General description

Mineral oil standard mixture is mostly used to determine mineral oil content in water, soil and sludge matrices.


Mineral oil standard mixture type A and B for EN ISO 9377-2 has been used as a reference matrix spiking solution in the determination of total petroleum hydrocarbons in samples of sea sediments using gas chromatography coupled with flame ionization detection (GC-FID).
It may be used as reference material in determination of total hydrocarbon index from water samples, which involves direct coupling between stir membrane extraction and infrared spectroscopy.
Refer to the product′s Certificate of Analysis for more information on a suitable instrument technique. Contact Technical Service for further support.
