Title A new tool for sampling airborne isocyanates
Bibliographic information May 1991, Vol.52, No.5, p.183-186. Illus. 13 ref.
Abstract A new sampling system is presented that uses solid sorbent media contained in a tube for the determination of airborne isocyanates (2,4-2,6 toluene diisocyanate, hexamethylene diisocyanate, and 4,4' diaminodiphenylmethane diisocyanate). The method is compared with the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) Method P&CAM 5505 (Revision No.1). Experimental tests yielded results that were highly concordant with the NIOSH method.
