||Collection and determination of 1,3-butadiene using passive dosimeters and automatic thermal desorption
||Jan. 1997, Vol.58, No.1, p.44-50. Illus. 19 ref.
||A passive dosimeter for sampling ambient levels of 1,3-butadiene was constructed using automatic thermal desorption tubes packed with charcoal sorbent wafers. The exposed tubes were thermally desorbed and analyzed by gas chromatography, and the effects of concentration, back diffusion and sample storage time were studied. Results of laboratory and field validation tests indicated that the method is valid for occupational exposure monitoring of 1,3-butadiene. Results obtained with the new device were not statistically different from those obtained using the current National Institute of Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) method.
