Determination of Low Molecular Weight Volatile Fatty Acids in Aqueous Samples Michael J. Barcelona,*' Howard M. Liljestrand,* and James J. Morgan W. M. Keck Laboratories of Environmental Engineering Science, California Institute of Technology, 138-78,Pasadena, California 9 1 125

An lonexchange/derivatlzation procedure is described for the determination of C,-Cs volatile fatty acids in a range of dinicuk aqueous matrices. The resulting p-bromophenacyi esters may be separated via either HPLC or GLC techniques depending on desired selectlvity and sensitivity. Micromolar concentrations of these acids can be determined to better than f0.20 pM within 95% confidence intervals. Sewage and marine sediment pore water analyses can be performed on small samples (
