Evaluation of styrene in air by thermal desorption-gas chromatography.
Scientific Meeting of the Group of Chromatography and Related Techniques of the Spanish Royal Society of Chemistry. Barcelona (ESP), 1996/10/22.
A method to quantify the environmental styrene of occupationally exposed workers has been established.
A diffusive sampler, that can be analysed by using thermal desorption-gas chromatography, was used to adsorb styrene from the ambient environment.
A laboratory study was carried out to evaluate the performance of the sampler and to determine the styrene uptake rate, following the criteria adopted in European Standard 848.
Finally, the proposed method has been checked under real conditions by evaluating styrene levels from an exposed population.
There were no significant differences with the results obtained by other sampling methods.
