New book from the American Industrial Hygiene Association

Wednesday, 5 June 2013 at 9:46:AM
A new book, titled ‘Important Instrumentation and Methods for the Detection of Chemicals in the Field’ and edited by Philip A. Smith and Gregory W. Cook, has been published by the American Industrial Hygiene Association.

The book is described as “an essential resource for anyone who must detect and measure workplace or environmental chemical exposures”, and contains a chapter focusing on the application of thermal desorption (TD) written by Markes’ Director, Elizabeth Woolfenden.

As well as summarising the background to TD and its advantages over solvent extraction, the chapter highlights the significant technological developments that make TD such a valuable pre-concentration technique today, including backflush operation, enhanced sample splitting, repeat analysis, and automation, amongst others. The chapter also contains a selection of examples illustrating the range of TD applications across the field of industrial hygiene, from detection of solvents in the breath of factory workers to fence-line monitoring of fugitive emissions.
