@Win_OpenData @AliciaMateos_ @SETAC_plastics That would be awesome!! I'm still looking for a nice cleanup method that goes together with my Py-GC/MS method here https://t.co/uVYcsNWp7s

Just caught the last change to share some early research with you @PeerJPreprints: A simple method for the quantification of #microplastics in #soil by Py-GC/MS. We got detection limits in the nanogram range! Looking forward to your feedback https://t.co/F8tczdk5MR
