NotesThe 30 m x 0.25 mm ID x 0.5 µm Stabiliwax column offers equivalent selectivity to the ZB-Wax Plus chromatogram published in EPA Method 541, but with a significantly faster analysis time under the same GC conditions. Chlorobenzene elutes at 13.14 min in the method and at 8.66 minutes on the Stabiliwax column.
