The most common phthalate acid esters (8 compounds) and adipate were determined from water and sediment simultaneously. After liquid-liquid extraction with n-hexane for water and sonication extraction with dichloromethane for sediment, these were determined by the GC/MS with SIM mode. There were good linearities (above $R^2=0.993$) on the range of the 0.1-20 ng/ml (water) and 10-500 ng/g (sediment), and the detection limits of method were below 0.1 ng/ml and 10 ng/g for water samples and sediment samples, respectively. The method shows a good precision and accuracy for measurement of phthalates and adipate.
