Title Collection and determination of Counter (Terbufos) insecticide in air
Bibliographic information Aug. 1983, Vol.44, No.8, p.567-571. 5 ref.
Abstract Insecticide vapour is collected on charcoal tubes at 150cm3/min for 8h. When the insecticide is present in air as a mixture of dust and vapour, a 13mm mixed cellulose ester filter/charcoal tube sampling train is used. The collected material is desorbed with toluene and analysed by gas chromatography using a nitrogen-phosphorus detector. Average collection efficiency for both sampling systems is 91.9%. Sample stability was good after 30 days storage at O░C. Average recovery was 91.6%.
