Method 5034

Tributyl Phosphate by GC/FPD

This method is used for the determination of tributyl phosphate. The sample is collected on cellulose membrane filters, desorbed with diethyl ether, and analyzed by GC-FDP with a phosphorous filter. The working range is 0.006 to 1.4 ppm (0.06 to 15 mg/m³) for a 100 L air sample. This method may be adapted to other phosphates of relatively low volatility with appropriate changes in chromatographic conditions. NOTE: This revises method S208.
