||The determination of the odor threshold of Telone II soil fumigant by a new method
||Nov. 1988, Vol.3, No.11, p.299-302. Illus. 8 ref.
||A method has been developed for the determination of the olfactory threshold of vapours and gases. It involves the dilution of a concentrated vapour or gas by a metering pump into an odour-free stream of air and an odour-free sampling system. Its advantage over other methods is the speed and accuracy with which odour thresholds can be determined. This method has been used to determine the odour of Telone II Soil Fumigant in air. In a population of 22 persons, the concentration at which odour was detected was 4.4 ▒ 3.1ppm (mean ▒ S.D.). This level is slightly above the current threshold limit value time-weighted average of 1.0ppm but below the short-term exposure limit of 10ppm.
