||This method for the determination of cadmium and inorganic compounds of cadmium in air updates and replaces MDHS 10 (see CIS 81-1958). The method is suitable for sampling over periods in the range 15min to 8h. Principle: a measured volume of air is drawn through a filter mounted in an inhalable or respirable dust sampler, the filter and collected sample are treated with nitric acid and the resultant solution is analyzed in an atomic absorption spectrometer. Detection limits correspond to cadmium in air concentrations of 1.2µg/m3 and 4µg/m3 for flame atomic absorption spectrometry and 0.024µg/m3 and 0.08µg/m3 for electrothermal atomic absorption spectrometry.
