||1,3-Butadiene in air: Laboratory method using pumped samplers, thermal desorption and gas chromatography
||HSE Books, P.O. Box 1999, Sudbury, Suffolk CO10 2WA, United Kingdom, Aug. 2003. 11p. 24 ref. Price: GBP 15.00.
||This revised analytical method is aimed at occupational hygienists, safety practitioners and laboratory technicians. It describes the sampling of 1,3-butadiene in air using pumped samplers, thermal desorption and gas phase chromatography. The main changes with respect to the earlier edition include the recommendation for using a drying pre-filter when using molecular sieve 13X sorbent, and for adding new validation data for molecular sieve 13X and graphitized carbon black sorbents. Contents: requirements of the Control of Substances Hazardous to Health (COSHH) Regulations (see CIS 03-1023); scope; reagents; apparatus; procedure; calculation of results; method performance; quality control measures. Replaces CIS 92-589.
