NIOSH Analytical Method Cresols, All Isomers S167 (Set 4).
NIOSH 1975 Aug:20 pages
The standard analytical method for the detection of cresol (1319773) and its isomers is presented. Occupational injury as a result of cresol exposure occurs primarily as damage to the skin. The OSHA standard analysis procedure for detection in samples is adsorption on silica gel, desorption with acetone, and analysis by gas chromatography. The range of frequency is 10.54 to 42.4mg/m3. Cresol sample precision is 0.068. Sample preparation is described. Methods of calculation are given. A sampling data sheet and backup data sheet are included.
