Description

Ethylene oxide is collected on a flexible, inert charcoal wafer treated with hydrogen bromide.  The hydrogen bromide converts ethylene oxide to 2-bromoethanol.  At the lab, the excess hydrogen bromide is neutralized with sodium carbonate.  Then, the 2-bromoethanol is extracted with 90/10 toluene/acetonitrile and analyzed by GC/ECD.  No further derivatization is required.
