Method 88

Propylene oxide

This method describes the sample collection and analysis of propylene oxide. Samples are collected by drawing air through standard size Anasorb 747 adsorbent tubes. The Anasorb 747 is desorbed with carbon disulfide and the desorbate is analyzed by gas chromatography using a flame ionization detector.
