A New Adsorbent for the Concentration and Analysis of Volatile Organic Compounds in the Environment.
NIOSH 1976 Jul:107-120
A new concentration technique is described for analysis of volatile organic compounds in the environment using a new adsorbent, 2,6- diphenyl-p-phenylene oxide, a porous polymer that fulfills the requirements of efficient adsorptivity and desorptivity. Samples are desorbed at 200-300 degrees centigrade with good reproducibility, and regeneration is effected at 375 degrees centigrade. The advantages and disadvantages of various air analysis techniques are discussed.
