NIOSH 1980 Aug:202 pages
The second volume of the student manual covering industrial hygiene chemistry is presented. The course, developed by the NIOSH Division of Training and Manpower Development, is intended for personnel in the field of occupational health who require specialized training in monitoring and evaluating the work environment. The manual will allow the students to continue studying after they have completed the course by referral to the outline, notes, and other references. Recommended prerequisites for the course include an undergraduate degree in chemistry (or its equivalent) along with at least 1 year of instrumental analysis. The course consists of 18 lessons that cover the topics through lectures, demonstrations, and laboratory work. Volume 2 contains the laboratory materials. Laboratory work consists of operating and calibrating a fluoride ion selective electrode system, determining free silica by a colorimetric method, determining lead in particulate samples by atomic absorption spectrometry, determining toluene and cyclohexane by gas chromatography, and determining sulfur-dioxide by titrimetric and colorimetric procedures.
