Progress in the Development of Sampling and Analytical Methods for Organic Materials.
NIOSH 1976 Jul:209-224
A report on the sampling and analysis of phosgene, a mixture of nitrate esters, nitroglycerin, and ethylene glycol dinitrate, acrylonitrile, and methyl chloride. The experimental effort to develop methods similar to the ones using charcoal as a sorbent consists of screening various solid sorbent materials for their efficiency in retaining their vapors, selecting the most suitable sorbent for each substance, determining the optimum conditions of use of the sorbent material in a sampling system that uses a personal sampling pump, devising a suitable method of desorbing the sample material from the sorbent, and evaluating methods to select the most appropriate method for use by NIOSH. Preliminary results of only phosgene and the nitrate esters are given.
