Trans 2,4-Difluoro- 100 ppb 9.52%
2,6-Difluoro- 100 ppb 6.93%
3,4-Difluoro- 100 ppb 13.32%
Salicylic acid*** 10 ppb 3.77%
5-Fluoro- 10 ppb 6.95%
3,5-Dichloro- 25 ppb 4.35%
,.5-Diiodo- 1 ppm 6.24%
* See table 2 for analytical conditions.
** These compounds eluted so closely at all practical solvent mixtures, that they were removed
from further consideration at this time.
** The Salicylic acid was removed from further consideration at this time for two reasons: the
Salicylic and 5-Fluorosalicylic acids co-eluted at all practical solvent mixtures, and it was
thought that the Salicylic acid would decompose more rapidly than the other Salicylic acids;
so the 5-Fluorosalicylic acid was chosen as the better candidate of the two.
** 3,5-Diiodo Salicvlic acid was removed from further consideration because of poor sensitiviv.
