Abstract This revised analytical method describes the sampling of 1,3-butadiene in air using diffusive samplers, thermal desorption and gas chromatography. The main changes with respect to the earlier edition are the restriction of the maximum diffusive sampling time to 10 hours when using Molecular Sieve 13X sorbent and the addition of validation data for Molecular Sieve 13X and uptake rate data for graphitized carbon sorbents. The method can be used for the determination of personal exposure or for fixed location monitoring. Replaces the previous edition (CIS 91-585).
