Method 5006

Carbaryl (Sevin)

This method is for the determination of carbaryl by visible absorption spectrophotometry. The sample is collected on glass fiber filters, which must be free of organic binders. The working range is 0.5 to 20 mg/m³ for a 200-L air sample. Note: This revises Method S273.
