PIEZOELECTRIC CRYSTAL DETECTORS WILL BE DEVELOPED AS PERSONAL MONITORS WHICH CAN BE USED TO DETECT EXPOSURE TO TOXIC COMPOUNDS INDOORS, AT WORK-PLACE SITES. CRYSTALS WILLBE COATED WITH SELECTIVE ADSORBENTS FOR THE POLLUTANTS TO BEASSAYED. DETECTION OF PPB CONCENTRATIONS, EITHER CONTINUOUSLY OR AS A DOSIMETER, WILL BE POSSIBLE.
