Abstract

Nowadays, the need to have a realistic characterization of industrial effluents in the environment has become more and more recognized. A palette of different analytical methods both for sample extraction and instrumental analysis are available today, some older, others introduced more recently. The aim of this research is to compare a number of these techniques. To do this we studied a real leachate from an industrial landfill and carried out chemical analyses for organic pollutants, using different extraction methods based on solid-phase extraction and solid-phase microextraction and different instrumental techniques such as GC-MS, LC-MS, NMR and LC-NMR. Results show the performances of the different techniques, which are complementary.
