Method 76

Chloroacetaldehyde by GC/ECD

This method describes the sample collection and analysis of chloroacetaldehyde. Air samples are collected by drawing known volumes of air through glass sampling tubes, each containing 520 mg of silica gel adsorbent in the front section and 260 mg in the backup section. The samples are desorbed with acetonitrile and analyzed by GC using an electron capture detector. Store collected samples in a freezer upon receipt at the laboratory.
