||1,3-Butadiene in air
||HMSO Books, P.O. Box 276, London SW8 5DT, United Kingdom, 1992. 7p. 11 ref. Price: GBP 2.50.
||This guidance note is a revision of the 1986 edition (see CIS 88-961). A laboratory method using pumped molecular sieve absorbent tubes, thermal desorption and gas chromatography is described. The method is suitable for sampling over periods of 10min to 8hr and may be used for the determination of personal exposure and (by suitable modification) for fixed location monitoring. Suitable for the measurement of airborne butadiene gas in the concentration range 0.2-100mg/m3 for samples of 5L of air. The overall precision of the method is expected to be better than 10% (assuming a pump error of 5%). The bias is expected to be better than 5%. Any compound that co-elutes with the butadiene under the operating conditions chosen is a potential interferent.
