||An investigation of the composition of the vapour evolved from aqueous glutaraldehyde solutions
||Feb. 1995, Vol.39, No.1, p.63-78. Illus. 12 ref.
||The composition of the vapour evolved from aqueous glutaraldehyde solutions has been studied using gas chromatography, Fourier transform infra-red spectrometry and high-performance liquid chromatography. This included a study of commercial sterilizing products at concentrations of about 2% glutaraldehyde, both with and without added activator. The main component evolved is monomeric glutaraldehyde with smaller amounts of methanol and butyraldehyde. An investigation of the atmosphere above an activated sterilizing solution suggests that concentrations of up to 2ppm glutaraldehyde can be formed.
