Title Second European intercomparison on aldehyde hydrazone standard reference materials
Bibliographic information Arbetsmiljöinstitutet, Förlagstjänst, 171 84 Solna, Sweden, 1994. 40p. Illus. 8 ref.
Abstract The main goal of this project is to improve the quality of aldehyde measurements in workplace air. This includes certification of reference materials for the quality control of aldehyde analyses. A total of 24 laboratories tested three types of reference materials related to the monitoring of aldehydes in air by derivatization with 2,4-dinitrophenylhydrazine and subsequent determination of the hydrazone by high-pressure liquid chromatography. The results of these tests are discussed.
