Abstract
A visit was made to the Akron Chemical facility of the B.F. Goodrich Company, located in Akron, Ohio to determine whether or not N- nitroso compounds were present in the workplace air in selected operations of the rubber industry. The facility employed 120 people, and operated three shifts of 40 employees each. Samples were collected in two buildings, one of which produced the vulcanization retarder N-nitrosodiphenylamine and the accelerator bismorpholine-carbamylsulfenamide, and the other building produced polymerized 2,2,4-trimethyl-dihydroquinoline, used as an antioxidant. Fifteen area air samples and 16 bulk samples were collected. Eight of these samples were either chemical intermediates or the final product. Five samples were of water used by the plant and three were soil samples. Analysis of the air at the facility identified N-nitrosodimethylamine (62759), N- nitrosodipropylamine (621647), and N-nitrosomorpholine (59892) as present. No N-nitrosodiphenylamine was found in any sample.
