Solid phase extractionA simple and fast method of solid phase extraction (SPE) disk for the determination of trace acrylamide was developed. Using this new technique along with high performance liquid chromatography (HPLC) and ultraviolet spectroscopy (UV) detection, the feasibility of SPE disk method for rapid enrichment was demonstrated in the determination of trace acrylamide in 500 mL tap water. Active carbon was chosen as the adsorbent to be incorporated into the SPE disk as it gave the best adsorption efficiency.
