||Guidance note on a laboratory method using 1-(2-methoxyphenyl) piperazine solution and high performance liquid chromatography. Scope: suitable for sampling over periods of 10min-8h. Although recommended for the determination of personal exposure, the method may be used for fixed location monitoring by suitable modification. Analytical range: 7-140µg NCO/m3 for samples of 10L of air. For an 8h (30L) sample, the detection limit is 2µg NCO/m3. Aromatic amines will produce interference with the method. Additional information on organic isocyanates: properties, uses, toxicity, first aid. This guidance note is a revision of the previous MDHS with the same number published in 1983 (CIS 84-1618).
