Method S385

Titanium Dioxide

This method is for the collection and analysis of titanium dioxide from workplace air.  The sample is collected on a mixed cellulose ester membrane (MCE) filter.  After collection the filter is digested with nitric acid, solubilized with sulfuric acid and ammonium sulfate, and analyzed by ICP (inductively couple plasma).
