Method 5009

Benzoyl Peroxide by HPLC

This method is used for the analysis of benzoyl peroxide. The sample is collected on cellulose ester membrane filters, dissolved in ethyl ether, and analyzed by HPLC with a UV detection method. The working range is 2 to 19 mg/m³ for a 90 L air sample. NOTE: This is method S253 in a revised format. A non-specific gravimetric method and a non-specific colorimetric method appear in the criteria document.
