Second NIOSH solid sorbents roundtable.
Ballou EV, ed. Cincinnati, OH: U.S. Department of Health, Education, and Welfare, Public Health Service, Centers for Disease Control, National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health, DHEW (NIOSH) Publication No. 76-193, 1976 Jul; :1-237
Proceedings of a two-day meeting of experts on the sorption of toxic substances on solids. The primary interest of NIOSH in this area is the applicability of these solid materials to the sampling of air contaminants in the workplace in order to assess chemical exposure of the American working population. Thirteen papers and a general discussion are contained in the proceedings. Each author presents his own view of the characteristics of solid surfaces as they relate to sorption sampling. A variety of topics are discussed in the papers. These include not only the theoretical aspects of surface chemistry and sample retention performance, but also the development of monitoring hardware, the use of fluidized bed concepts, the collection of high volumes and the evaluation of a variety of sorbents for specific compounds. A roundtable discussion at the end of each presentation brings out some of the applications of the research to field sampling.
