Compact personal monitor for organic air pollutants.
Environmental Sciences Institute, Chemistry Department, Louisiana State University, Baton Rouge, Louisiana 1978 May; :1-8
Monitors for selected organic and inorganic gaseous hazards were developed. Initially the goal was to develop personal monitors utilizing the permeation approach and resulting in a light weight, inexpensive, accurate, reliable and convenient device, free from the usual environmental stresses. The results of field evaluations conducted for the detection of vinyl-chloride (75014), benzene (71432), toluene (108883), inorganic gases, hydrogen-fluoride (7664393), and hydrogen-sulfide (7783064) were presented. Studies have substantiated the applicability of the permeation approach for monitoring benzene, toluene, trichloroethylene (79016), methylene- chloride (75092), chloroform (67663), and carbon-tetrachloride (56235). Laboratory and field tests have validated the vinyl- chloride monitor, and results from studies on the other gases have shown promise.
