Bibliographic information HSE Books, P.O. Box 1999, Sudbury, Suffolk CO10 2WA, United Kingdom, Jan. 2003. 5p. 10 ref. Price: GBP 12.00.
Abstract This document describes a laboratory method for the determination of the concentration of hydroquinone in air. Air samples are collected in the breathing zone in a dust sampler backed with a sorbent tube. After desorption into acetonitrile, the samples are analysed by high performance liquid chromatography (HPLC). Contents: legal requirements; health effects, safety and health precautions and exposure limits; principle and scope of the method; sampling equipment; laboratory apparatus; reagents; preparation and collection of samples; sample analysis; calculation of results; method performance; quality control measures; recommendations for the test report
