Abstract

A reference material related to the measurement in air of chlorinated hydrocarbons by polymer sorption and analysis by thermal desorption - gas chromatography has been produced. Each unit consists of a stainless steel tube, 9 cm in length and of 5 mm inner diameter, packed with 250 mg of Tenax GR charged with controlled amounts of dichloromethane, 1,1,1-trichloroethane, trichloroethylene, perchloroethylene and toluene. The material has been tested for homogeneity and stability; the amount of each compound desorbed from a unit is certified on the basis of measurements in 6 laboratories.
