Method 75

Vinyl chloride by GC/FID

This method describes the sample collection and analysis of vinyl chloride. Air samples are collected by drawing known volumes of air through glass sampling tubes containing Carbosieve S-III (carbon based molecular sieve) adsorbent. Samples are desorbed with a mixture of 99:1 (v/v) carbon disulfide (CS2)/dimethylformamide (DMF) in the presence of magnesium sulfate. Samples are analyzed by GC using a flame ionization detector. Samples are to be stored at reduced temperature after they have been received at the analytical laboratory.
