Method ID-182

Nitrogen Dioxide

This method is for the collection and analysis of airborne nitrogen dioxide.  The sample is collected on a triethanolamine (TEA)-impregnated molecular sieve tube.  The tube converts nitrogen dioxide to nitrite in After collection the tube is desorbed with a 1.5% triethanolamine solution and analyzed by for (NO2-) by ion chromatography.

Note:  This method supersedes Method ID-109.
