5 g of Carbograph 4 . This property was also exploited for the extraction of benzene and naphthalene sulfonate and was shown to be more efficient that conventional ion-pair extraction on C~8 silicas [ 148]. Carbograph 4 was used for the extraction and identification using LC-MS of biotransformation products of alcohol ethoxylate surfactants [149,150]. Carbon-based membrane extraction disks are also available and were used for the determination of N-nitrosodimethylamine at the ng/1 level in ground water [ 151 ].
