Title Chromatographic determination of acrylonitrile, ethanol, toluene, butyl alcohol and epichlorohydrin in mixtures in workplace air
Original title Gazohromatografičeskoe opredelenie akrilonitrila, ėtanola, toluola, butanola i epihlorgidrina v vozduhe pri sovmestnom prisutstvii [in Russian]
Bibliographic information Apr. 1987, No.4, p.55-56. Illus. 3 ref.
Abstract Optimal conditions were established for the determination of the title compounds: 3m by 3mm column packed with 10% polyethylene glycol adipate on 0.25-0.5mm Spherochrome; column temperature 90░C; injector temperature 125░C; carrier gas (helium) flow rate 40mL/min; flame ionisation detector. An analysis takes 10min. The newly developed method permits determination of the following minimal concentrations: acrylonitrile - 0.25mg/m3 (MAC 0.5mg/m3), ethanol - 1mg/m3 (MAC 1000mg/m3), toluene - 1mg/m3 (MAC 50mg/m3), butyl alcohol - 1mg/m3 (MAC 10mg/m3), epichlorohydrin - 0.5mg/m3 (MAC 1mg/m3).
