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.
