A simple method for the generation of metallic oxide serosols.

Am Ind Hyg Assoc J 1974 Dec; 35(12):825-831
A method is described for the generation of metallic oxide aerosols using a Lovelace and a Collison nebulizer with aqueous solutions of metallic carbonates, acetates, and oxalates, with the generated aerosols subsequently dried, thermally decomposed, and cooled to yield the corresponding metallic oxide. The mass median diameters of the aerosols generated are in the sub-micron range, being potentially useful in inhalation studies. Test data are presented on aerosols of cadmium (7440439), nickel (7440020), and manganese (7439965).
