Method P&CAM 304

o-Chlorobenzylidene Malononitrile (OCBM)

This method is for the collection and analysis of o-chlorobenzylidene malononitrile (OCBM) from workplace air.  The sample is collected on a PTFE membrane filter followed by a Tenax sorbent tube.  After collection the filter and sorbent are extracted with 20% methylene chloride in hexane and analyzed by HPLC using a UV detector.

The working range of the method is 0.147 - 0.810 mg/m3 using a 90L sample.
