Organization: ASTM International
Publication Date: 10 October 2001
Status: historical
Page Count: 6
ICS Code (Ambient atmospheres): 13.040.20
scope:

1.1 This practice covers the applications of methods for the desorption and gas chromatographic determination of organic vapors that have been adsorbed from air in sampling tubes packed with activated charcoal.

1.2 This practice is complementary to Practice D3686.

1.3 This practice is applicable for analysis of samples taken from workplace or other atmospheres, provided that the contaminant adsorbs onto charcoal and that it can be analyzed by gas chromatography. A partial list of organic compounds for which this method is applicable is given in A1 in Practice D3686.

1.4 Organic compounds of multicomponent samples may mutually interfere during analysis. Methods to resolve interferences are given in Section 6.

1.5 The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as the standard.

1.6 This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use. Specific precautions are given in 8.1.4.2 and A1.
