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

Male American palm weevils (APWs),Rhynchophorus palmarum (L.) produced two sex-specific compounds, which were disclosed by volatile collections on Supelpak-2 and gas chromatography. One was a minor compound, not always detected. The major male-produced volatile was identified as (2E)-6-methyl-2-hepten-4-ol through coupled...
