Concentration and solvent recovery of environmental samples in dichloromethane

Environmental samples are usually extracted with an organic solvent which is then concentrated prior to final analysis.

In this Short Note, initial conditions and evaporation settings for the parallel concentration of samples dissolved in dichloromethane (DCM) having different starting volumes are presented. These settings have been optimized for high analyte and high solvent recoveries.
