General description

Chloral hydrate solution (Method: EPA 551 and 551.1) may be utilized for identifying and quantifying chlorinated disinfection by-products and solvents in drinking water. The pre-requisite of EPA 551 and 551.1 methods is the use of gas chromatography with a selective detector, gas chromatography/mass spectrometry or high performance liquid chromatography.
Chloral hydrate solution (Method: EPA 8260) is utilized for identifying and quantifying volatile organic compounds on the EPA′s Appendix VIII and Appendix IX lists in solid wastes and groundwater at active hazardous treatment, storage, and disposal sites. The pre-requisite of EPA 8260 method is the use of gas chromatography with a selective detector or gas chromatography/mass spectrometry.
Chloral hydrate is used as a calibration standard featured in environmental applications.
