Thin film microextraction (TFME) is considered as a type of solid-phase
microextraction (SPME). There has been a growing interest in TFME as a novel sample
preparation technique, which was originally introduced to address the limiting uptake
rate and capacity sometimes observed with fiber microextraction. The inherent
properties of TFME technique such as the excellent sample clean-up and the larger
surface to volume ratio, enhance the sensitivity and the extraction rates. This e-book
article is mainly focused on the fundamental principles behind and in the diverse
existing TFME configurations, paying particular attention to cotter pin supported
format, copper mesh holder and 96-blade format.
