Abstract
Environmental samples were collected on September 22, 1978, to determine the workers' exposure to N-nitroso compounds, especially airborne volatile nitrosamines, at the Uniroyal tire factory (SIC- 3111) in Chicopee Falls, Massachusetts. The area air samples contained N-nitrosomorpholine (59892) (NMOR) ranging from 0.03 to (NDMA) ranging from 0.03 to 0.2 micrograms per cubic meter, and N- nitrosodiethylamine (55185) (NDEA) ranging from 0.13 to 1.4 micrograms per cubic meter. The process air samples contained NMOR ranging from 0.73 to 22.0 micrograms per cubic meter. High nitrosamine concentrations were associated with heating and increasing the surface of the rubber stock. Two unknown compounds were detected and were determined not to be N-nitroso compounds, but acted like O-nitroso compounds.
