All volumes of the MAK-Collection provide comprehensive and authoritative information for occupational health and safety professionals and researchers. They cover both the toxicological substantiation of threshold values for chemicals at the workplace (MAK and BAT values) and the suitable monitoring methods. Thus, they are an indispensable tool for maintaining occupational health and safety. For 16 of the most important occupational toxicants, detailed, ready-to-use protocols for air monitoring methods are provided in this special volume. The methods were developed to monitor concentrations of occupational toxicants at the workplace. They can also be used for environmental monitoring. All methods are reliable, reproducible, in accordance with quality assurance standards and cover all required steps from sampling to the interpretation of results. This includes data on precision, accuracy, and detection limit, calibration procedures as well as potential sources of systematic errors. Advantages and Disadvantages of each method are clearly outlined. The documented methods are authoritative, because they were compiled by the Commission for the Investigation of Health Hazards of Chemical Compounds in the Work Area. The Commission is internationally acknowledged for its neutrality and is working strictly according to transparent, scientific criteria.9 Discussion of the method During sampling, care must be taken that the ubiquitous salts of the three acids are not also collected. As the ... It is recommended already purified silica gel be used for the determination of the inorganic acids HC1, HBr and HNO3. The blank value of ... 10 References  National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH): NIOSH Manual of Analytical Methods. 4th ed.
