- In the 30 years since the invention of solid phase microextraction (Belardi & Pawliszyn, 1989), headspace (HS) extraction has developed into a powerful family of techniques for both targeted and untargeted chemical analysis of volatile and semi volatile compounds.
- We recently developed a static HS sampling approach, termed vacuum assisted sorbent extraction (VASE), in which the sample is positioned in a disposable sample vial and placed in a reduced pressure environment with a packed headspace sorbent pen (HSP).
- Here we describe the methodology behind VASE as well as the application of the technique to examine the chemical composition of a wide assortment of liquid and solid samples.
- Example applications are shown in the areas of environmental contamination, cannabis consumer products (e.g., edibles, flower), forensics, and alcoholic beverages.
