Method 46

1-Nitropropane and 2-Nitropropane by GC/FID

This method describes the sample collection and analysis of 1-Nitropropane and 2-Nitropropane. Samples are collected by drawing known volumes of air through commercially available XAD-4 sampling tubes. Samples are desorbed with carbon disulfide and analyzed by gas chromatography using a flame ionization detector. After samples are received at the laboratory, they should be stored under refrigeration, until analyzed, to help minimize migration.
