Solid-phase microextraction (SPME) was applied to the quantitative analysis of 60 volatile organic compounds (VOCs) in drinking water. Equilibrium curves for the partitioning of VOCs between the fibre coating and fortified water obtained at 20 C, 50 C and 80 C were found between the theoretical curves for completely agitated and non-agitated samples. Two important factors for the amount adsorbed onto the SPME fibre coating were the extraction period and the fibre coating/water distribution coefficient, K(FW).
