Title Second interlaboratory test on the determination of pentachlorophenol and lindane in indoor air organized by KRdL of VDI and DIN
Original title Zweiter Ringversuch der KRdL im VDI und DIN für die Bestimmung von Pentachlorphenol und Lindan in Luft [in German]
Bibliographic information Sep. 1998, Vol.58, No.9, p.333-336. 12 ref.
Abstract The toxicity of the organochlorine compounds pentachlorophenol (PCP) and µg-hexachlorocyclohexane (lindane) requires indoor air measurements in order to evaluate possible exposure levels. In 1997, the German Commission on Air Pollution Prevention (KRdL) organized the second interlaboratory test for the determination of pentachlorophenol and lindane in indoor air. 45 laboratories participated in the test using either the VDI-test schedule or their own method. The results indicate an improvement in the analysis consistency compared to the first test conducted in 1995, which may be attributed to a better training of the participants or an increase in the use of the standard operating procedure developed by the VDI.
