This paper describes successful laboratory development and field evaluation of an effective method for sampling acetronitrile from stationary sources. The acetronitrile sampling train uses Modified Method 5 sampling procedures and hardware nearly identical to those described in US EPA Method 0010, but employs Carboxen-1000 sorbent rather than Amberlite XAD-2. A field evaluation conducted according to US EPA Method 301 demonstrated RSDs of 17% and 13% for the 20 unspiked and dynamically spiked samples, respectively. The bias was statistically insignificant, so no bias correction factor was required. The estimated detection limit for the method is 60 ppbv, using quantitation by flame ionization detector.
