Method 52

Acrolein and Formaldehyde

This method is for the sample collection and analysis of acrolein and formaldehyde.  The sample is collected on a  2-(hydroxymethyl)piperidine (2-HMP) coated XAD-2 tube.  After collection the sample is desorbed with toluene and analyzed by  gas chromatography using a nitrogen selective detector (GC/NPD).
