Method 56

1,3-Butadiene by GC/FID

This method describes the sample collection and analysis of 1,3-butadiene. Air samples are collected by drawing known volumes of air through sampling tubes containing charcoal adsorbent which has been coated with 4-tert-butylcatechol. The samples are desorbed with carbon disulfide and then analyzed by gas chromatography using a flame ionization detector
