Title Stability studies of diphenylmethane diisocyanate (MDI) on glass fiber filters
Bibliographic information Sep. 1998, Vol.59, No.9, p.645-647. Illus. 8 ref.
Abstract A study conducted under field conditions found that more diphenylmethane diisocyanate (MDI) was collected from glass fibre filters treated with an appropriate solvent in the field than from those shipped to the laboratory dry (in their holders). If field desorptions were not performed, the airborne concentrations of MDI would be underestimated. While field desorption may not be necessary in all applications where isocyanates are used, it is necessary where dusty environments are encountered, such as in the forest products industry. Topics: air sampling; airborne dust; comparative study; diphenylmethane diisocyanate; fibrous filters; glass fibre; sample processing; solvent extraction.
