Abstract

This procedure is a simple and robust method of extracting and analysing the problematic taste and odour compounds, geosmin (GSM) and 2-methylisoborneol (2-MIB), from water sampled from surface and drinking water sources. The use of solid-phase extraction (SPE) for extraction facilitates high throughput clean-up and concentration of GSM and 2-MIB in diverse water samples. In addition to simplicity, this approach offers an option of remote sampling, shipping, and analysis. Elution of the SPE cartridge is followed by established GC-MS analysis. This method was successfully applied for investigating the destruction of GSM and 2-MIB in a continuous packed bed photocatalytic reactor.
