A sampling and analysis program was conducted to determine the levels of vinylidene chloride in air and water around six industrial sites, in selected municipal drinking waters and in selected polymeric materials. The industrial sites included monomer producers, polymer producers and polymer users. Air was collected at perimeters of the industrial sites as 24-hr composite samples using charcoal adsorption tubes. Grab water samples were collected up- and downstream, at the plant discharge and at the municipal water treatment plants. Air levels ranged from 52 microgram/sq m to nondetectable at the industrial sites; water levels ranged from 550 microgram/liters to nondetectable at the plant sites and from 0.06 microgram/liters to nondetectable in the drinking waters. The air and water samples were analyzed by GC and results confirmed by GC/MS. Other components in the samples were identified by GC/MS.
