Rotenone Analytical Method.
NIOSH 1979 May:32 pages
The NIOSH analytical method S300 for determining rotenone (83794) in air is described. Samples are collected on a polytetrafluoroethylene membrane filter, extracted with acetonitrile and analyzed by high performance liquid chromatography with an ultraviolet detector at 290 nanometers. The working range of the method is 1.16 to 11.1 milligrams per cubic meter, the coefficient of variance is 0.079, and the detection limit is about 4.0 micrograms. Analytical apparatus, reagents and procedures are described, and calculations are provided for determining sample concentrations. Data on collection efficiency, and recovery and stability rates is included.
