Analytes - 1,3-dichloropropane

1,3-dichloropropane: CAS No. 142-28-9, C3H6Cl2, molecular weight 112.99, boiling point 120.4°C, density 1.19gm/mL, vapor pressure 18.2mm Hg at 25°C, flash point 16°C, slightly water soluble is a colorless liquid not produced or used in the U.S., but which may have been released to the environment as a low level impurity in 1,2-dichloropropane and 1,3-dichloropropene production. It is most frequently measured in water, air and soil to comply with environmental regulations. Due to its volatility, it is most often measured using GC/ECD, ELCD and GC/MS methods specified by regulatory agencies like the U.S. EPA.
