Abstract:

ORGANIC ISOCYANATES, FOUND IN PLASTICS, PAINTS, AND EXPLOSIVES, ARE ALSO HIGHLY TOXIC. THEY POSE AN INDUSTRIAL HYGIENE PROBLEM BECAUSE THE LOW TOXIC CONCENTRATIONS ARE NOT EASILY MONITORED IN REAL TIME. WE PROPOSE TO COMBINE A RECENTLY-DEVELOPED PORTABLE LIQUID CHROMATOGRAPH WITH A PERMEATION ABSORBER TO EXTRACT ISOCYANATES FROM THE AIR AND MEASURE THEM UNDER FULLY AUTOMATIC CONTROL. THE PERMEATION ABSORBER WILL CONTAIN TRAPPING REAGENTS THAT FORM ELECTROCHEMICALLY-ACTIVE PRODUCTS FOR HIGH SENSITIVITY OF 20 PPH TOLUENE DIISOCYANATE, WILL WEIGH UNDER 15 LBS., AND WILL OPERATE FOR A WEEK ON A BATTERY CHARGE.
