Method 6008


This method is for the collection and analysis of stibine from wokplace air.  The sample is collected on a mercuric clhoride coated silica gel tube.  After collection, the sample is extraction with concentrated HCl and analyzed by visible spectrophotometry.  Stibine is analyzed as antimony (Sb).

The working range of the method is 0.1 to 3.5 mg/m3 (0.02 to 0.7 ppm) for a 20L sample.

NOTE:  This method revised Method S243.
