Summary

This methods permits the determination of styrene after active or passive sampling. With active sampling, measured air volumes are drawn with a sample pump through sampling tubes filled with Tenax TA. With passive sampling, collection of the hazard substances is carries out via diffusion processes and adsorption on the adsorbent. The adsorbed styrene is thermally desorbed and analysed by a gas chromatograph equipped with a flame ionisation detector.
