Title A sampling and analytical method for the simultaneous determination of multiple organophosphorus pesticides in air
Bibliographic information Dec. 1994, Vol.55, No.12, p.1172-1177. 18 ref.
Abstract A sampling and analytical method for organophosphorus pesticides was developed using a combined filter/XAD-2 sorbent sampler and gas chromatography with flame photometric detection. The method was evaluated for 19 organophosphorus pesticides based on joint OSHA/NIOSH criteria. Samples were stable for 30 days of storage under either ambient or refrigerated conditions. The 19 compounds studied can be determined over a range of 0.1 to 2 times their exposure limits with an accuracy of ▒25% of the true value 95 times out of 100.
