Abstract
Environmental samples were collected on October 13, 1978, to determine whether N-nitroso compounds were present or formed in the leather tanning (SIC-3111) industry where the precursor compound may be used as a part of the tanning process at the Amoskeag Facility of Granite State Leather, Incorporated in Manchester, New Hampshire. Seventeen air samples were collected and analyzed for N-nitroso compounds. No N-nitroso compounds were found in the facilities atmosphere on the day that it was sampled.
