NIOSH, 1975 Apr; :1-921
This 19 Volume Set includes Lessons 1-18 and the Course Director's Seminar for a one-week "Industrial Hygiene Chemistry" course, designed to give program graduates expertise in environmental sampling and analysis. Lesson 1 includes course objectives; list of lessons, lectures, references, and readings; brief course outline; exercises and problems; self tests, copies of visuals; homework; laboratories; special preparation section; laboratory procedures; and figures and forms. Lesson 2 is devoted to concepts of Threshold Limit Values, laboratory quality control, and laboratory accreditation. Lesson 3 encompasses the general use and application of types of direct reading instruments, including liquid reagents, detector tubes, chemiluminescence techniques, heat of combustion techniques, electrochemical techniques, thermal conductivity techniques, flame ionization techniques, gas chromatographic techniques, photometric techniques, and aerosol photometry. Lesson 4 encompasses general air flow calibration techniques, including calibration of sample volumes and calibration of sampling systems, and sampling procedures relevant to industrial hygiene chemistry, including standard mixtures and sample collection. Lesson 5 covers the operation and calibration of a fluoride ion selective electrode system for the purpose of quantitating the amount of fluoride collected in midget impingers. Lesson 6 encompasses uses, conditions, and sampling constraints for visible light, ultraviolet, infrared and fluorescence spectrophotometry. Lesson 7 encompasses applications, procedures, and equipment for visible light spectrophotometry, ultraviolet spectrophotometry, fluorescence spectrophotometry, and infrared spectrophotometry. Lesson 8 encompasses operation and calibration of a spectrophotometer, preparation of samples for analysis of the amount of free silica (quartz) (1317799) in mineral samples, color development in standards and samples and absorbance readings, and calculations and data analysis. Lesson 9 encompasses an introduction to spectroscopy, including uses, conditions, sampling constraints and applications for X-ray diffraction, X-ray fluorescence, optical emission, and flame emission analysis.Lesson 10 encompasses uses, conditions, sampling constraints, instrumentation and applications for atomic absorption spectrometry. Lesson 11 encompasses operation and calibration of an atomic absorption spectrophotometer for the purpose of quantitating the amounts of metals (lead) collected on filters such as cellulose membranes. Lesson 12 is titled an introduction to chromatography, including variety, conditions, and sampling constraints for chromatography. Lesson 13 encompasses the application, techniques, procedures, and equipment for chromatographic separation and analysis.Lesson 14, entitled gas chromatography of organic solvents, encompasses operation and calibration of a gas chromatograph to quantitate benzene (71432), chloroform (67663), carbon-tetrachloride (56235) and trichloroethylene (79016). Lesson 15, entitled titrametric determination of sulfur-dioxide (7446095), encompasses demonstration of a gas dilution system for standard concentrations of sulfur-dioxide using a permeation tube, demonstration of a sampling train with midget impinger, standardization of titrant, and calculations and data analysis. Lesson 16, colorimetric determination of sulfur-dioxide (7446-09-5), encompasses preparation of calibration solutions, spectrophotometric measurement, and calculations and data analysis. Lesson 17, biological monitoring, encompasses the purposes, uses, and techniques associated with urine, blood, and breath analysis as they apply to biological monitoring. Lesson 18 encompasses principles, equipment, and applications for anodic stripping voltametry, sample concentration methods, and micro analysis.
