Characterization of DEP-EOM. The soluble organic carbon/chemicals were extracted directly from the native particulates by sequential washing with n-hexane, DCM and methanol at 100 °C (under pressure), followed by a final washing with water at 25 °C. Total content of organic carbon was analyzed by thermal optical analysis, while content of PAHs and aliphatics were measured by GC-FID/MIS, as described under materials and methods. The extraction was done in three parallels and the results are expressed as mean ± SEM (n = 3)
