A rapid HPLC-DAD method for analysis of concentrated BTEX and styrene (BTEXS) aqueous mixtures is reported. Good resolutions of close to or greater than 1.5 were obtained for high equimolar BTEXS concentrations of up to 2.0 mM. At 5.5 min per sample analysis, this method is also one of the fastest HPLC methods to date, providing high throughput analysis and lowering the analysis price. © 2012 The Royal Society of Chemistry.
