Method 1451

Methyl Cellosolve Acetate by GC/FID

This method is used for the determination of methyl cellosolve acetate. The sample is collected on charcoal sorbent tubes and desorbed in 1 ml carbon disulfide. The sample is then analyzed by GC/FID. High humidity conditions may cause inefficient collection of organic vapors. The working range is 0.3 to 47 ppm (1.5 to 225 mg/m³) for a 20 L air sample. The method states that better sensitivity may be achieved if a capillary column is used in place of a packed column. NOTE: This is an adaptation of NIOSH Method S39 and OSHA Method 53, issued 1/1985.
