Abstract
Description of an aerosol generator for the production of soluble and insoluble nickel, lead, and cadmium aerosols. From solutions of lead chloride, water soluble aerosols with mass median diameters (MMD) of 0.19 micrometer and 0.30 micrometer, respectively, are produced. Aerosols of nickel oxide and cadmium oxide are produced by aerosolizing aqueous solutions of nickel citrate or cadmium acetate with air and then thermally decomposing the resulting aerosol in a tube furnace heated to 600 degrees centigrade. The resulting aerosols of nickel oxide and cadmium oxide had MMDs of 0.24 micrometer and 0.15 micrometer, respectively. The use of a nebulizer with soluble salts of metals followed by thermal decomposition and oxidation to form the required oxide provides an easily controlled system for the generation of aerosols of metal oxides.
