The purpose of this report is to identify challenges in analyzing naphthenic acids (NAs) associated with oil sands process water (OSPW). Naphthenic acids are present naturally in oil sands bitumen and have the classical formula CnH2n+ZO2. Within this formula n represents the carbon number and Z...
Standard Operating Procedures for Analysis of Naphthenic Acids from Oil Sands Process-Affected WaterDownload
Naphthenic acids (NAs) are considered the main source of chronic and acute toxicity in oil sands process-affected water (OSPW). The purpose of this investigation is to establish elements of a standard procedure to determine and minimize the amount of NA loss during storage, sample preparation...
