The Organic Chemistry lab supports Air Pollution Control
and Waste Management Division of the DEC. Analyses are performed
using gas chromatography, gas chromatography-mass spectroscopy and
liquid chromatography. Water and solid samples are tested for polychlorinated
biphenyls (PCB), semi-volatile organic compounds, volatile organic
compounds (VOC), pesticides, fuels, and other organic compounds.
Air samples are tested for VOCs and carbonyl compounds.
