Research is reported concerning an acceptable method for sampling and analyzing samples for carbon-disulfide (75150). Test atmospheres of carbon-disulfide were generated dynamically using the syringe injection method, and the theoretical concentration verified by a liquid absorbent, colorimetric method. The carbon-disulfide was adsorbed on charcoal tubes, eluted with benzene, and quantitated with a gas chromatograph equipped with a sulfur flame photometric detector. The results compared with the colorimetric analysis. The sensitivity of this method is one microgram on a charcoal tube. The charcoal tubes were also tested for breakthrough volumes, holding power versus time, and the effect of air transport and temperature cycles.
