Validated Test Method 8260C: Volatile Organic Compounds by Gas Chromatography/Mass Spectrometry (GC/MS)

The following document describes the method to determine volatile organic compounds in a variety of solid waste matrices.

When Method 8260D was posted to the SW-846 validated methods collection on April 28, 2017, Method 8260C was removed from the validated methods collection. Method 8260C was never incorporated into the SW-846 compendium because EPA never solicited public comment on this method.
