Abstract:

The main objective of this interlaboratory study is to validate and develop confidence in the quantitative analysis of oil-in-water concentration based on solvent extraction and infrared spectrophotometry. It is desired to evaluate this analytical procedure as a function of oil type, water salinity, oil concentration. A further objective of this study is to determine the range of variations of the measurement errors associated with this method both within each individual laboratory as well as across the participating laboratories. This volume highlights results and conclusions. Data is included.
