Título A collaborative study of 'ink mist' in U.K. newspaper press-rooms
Información bibliográfica 1983, Vol.27, No.2, p.127-135. Illus. 7 ref.
Resumen The printing of newspapers by the letterpress process produces a relatively stable aerosol composed of small droplets of printing ink. Gravimetric and optical methods of collecting and quantifying the ink mist are evaluated and are comparable and reproducible. Levels of ink mist in the press rooms are given in terms of typical benzo(a)pyrene (b(a)p) content (as a measure of polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbon content), which ranged from 0.0052 to 0.018µg/m3. Methods for determining b(a)p in ink aerosols by thin-layer chromatography and high-performance liquid chromatography are described.
