For strict comparison of compounds, vapor pressures at the same temperature and units of pressure must be used. 3. 5 (Skin) 50 (Skin) 300 100 a Skin notation means that there is the potential for significant absorption through the skin, and so air sampling alone may not accurately measure total exposure if skin adsorption can occur. Source: References 18 and 21. physical state of the compound as it is found in the air. Volatile compounds have vapor pressures greater than 1 mm Hg at ambient temperature and exist entirely in the vapor phase when airborne.

Flame ionization detector (FID) devices use an oxygen/hydrogen flame to ionize molecules of flammable compounds. Organic compounds with a large number of carbon-to-hydrogen bonds tend to respond well to FIDs. Electron capture detectors (ECD) use a radioactive source to generate a stream of ionized particles that are collected at an electrode. The contaminant molecules pick up some of the electrons as they flow past the radioactive source, thus reducing the current flow to the electrode. ECDs are sensitive to halogen compounds and those containing nitrogen or oxygen.

Since this techniques counts all fibers, in a “mixed” fiber environment it will tend to overstate the amount of asbestos. In these cases, scanning electron microscopy (SEM) or transmission electron microscopy (TEM) are two techniques that can identify and count only the asbestos fibers. Microscopy is also used for bioaerosols as described below. 10. Asbestos fibers under phase contrast microscopy. ) Ionizing radiation concentration or activity is generally determined by performing standard counting techniques on filters or other collection devices.
