NotesA 6 mL sample for residual solvents analysis based on USP <467> was prepared for headspace solid phase microextraction (HS-SPME) as follows:

1. 3 g sodium chloride was weighed into a 20 mL amber headspace vial (cat. # 23086) with screw top cap (cat. # 23090).
2. 6 mL of deionized water was added to the vial.
3. The sample was fortified at 10 µg/mL with the residual solvents, n-propane, isobutane, and n-butane standards.
4. The vial was capped and vortexed at 3000 rpm for 10 seconds, inverted, then vortexed again for 10 seconds at 3000 rpm.
5. The sample was analyzed using the following CTC RTC parameters.
