NIOSH Analytical Method Pentachlorophenol Sampling Data Sheet No. S297.
NIOSH 1977 Dec:.21 pages
Data on collecting pentachlorophenol (87865) from air samples is given. Pentachlorophenol is collected by drawing 180 liters of air through a mixed cellulose ester membrane filter connected in series to a midget bubbler containing 15ml of ethylene-glycol (107211). A flow rate of 1.5 liters of air per minute is recommended. The filter is then disconnected and added to a bubbler flask. High pressure liquid chromatography is used to separate and analyze the pentachlorophenol. This method has been shown to be valid over the range of 0.2654 to 1.131mg/cu meter at 24 degrees-C and pressure of 761mm Hg (7439976). Needed sampling equipment includes: a calibrated personal sampling pump, a 37mm three piece filter holder; a 37mm diameter, 0.8 micrometer cellulose ester membrane, filter; Teflon and polyethylene tubing for sealing the bubbler stem. Recording information on other compounds present in the sampled air is recommended. Expeditious shipping of the samples to the laboratory is also recommended.
