The aim of the project is to examine the extent to which some recently introduced analytical techniques can be applied to the determination of Red List compounds in a variety of aqueous and water-related matrices. The Red List compounds of interest may be conveniently considered as two groups - volatile organochlorines (VOCl's) and pesticides, the latter comprising organophosphorous compounds, organo-nitrogen compounds (triazines) and organochlorine pesticides (e.g. the "drins"). Two methods are being explored for the VOCl's, and it appears likely that the purge and trap method which utilises mass spectrometry (MS) for detection will prove to be the most satisfactory, particularly in terms of detection limits.
