Method 93

4-Aminobiphenyl, alpha-Naphthylamine, and beta-Naphthylamine.

This method describes the sample collection and analysis of 4-aminobiphenyl, alpha-naphthylamine, and beta-naphthylamine. Samples are collected closed-face by drawing known volumes of air through sampling devices consisting of three-piece cassettes, each containing two sulfuric acid-treated glass fiber filters separated by the ring section. The sample filters are transferred to separate glass vials containing 2 mL of deionized water within 10 h after sampling. Quantitation is performed by analyzing the heptafluorobutyric acid anhydride derivatives of the amines by gas chromatography using an electron capture detector.
