Volatile organic compounds (VOCs) contribute to poor air quality and contaminated groundwater. To measure VOCs accurately in the laboratory by gas chromatography or gas chromatography-mass spectrometry, researchers must prepare samples, standards, and blanks using pure water free from these compounds. A good laboratory water purification system is key to removing impurities below the limits of detection.
