Title Determining atmospheric insecticide concentration by the filter method
Original title Insektizid-Bestimmungen in atmosphńrischer Luft mittels der Filtermethode [in German]
Bibliographic information July 1972, Vol.93, No.7, p.202-205. Illus. 8 ref.
Abstract The advantages of the filter method for the quantitative determination of insecticides in air are presented. The results of studies with glassfibre filters are discussed. Gas chromatography with an electron-capture detector is used for analysis purposes. One must expect a high loss of material due to the amount of air passing through the filter. Although this loss is probably lower in practice, great care should be taken in the interpretation of results obtained with this method.
