This research program was initiated with the objective of developing, codifying and testing a group of chemical analytical methods for measuring toxic compounds in the exhaust of distillate-fueled engines (i.e. diesel, gas turbine, Stirling, or Rankin cycle powerplants). It is a part of a larger effort to characterize these components from a number of prototype powerplants and, thus, represents a logical first step in the process. Methods of collection and analysis for aldehydes and ketones, for hydrogen cyanide and cyanogen, for hydrogen sulfide, carbonyl sulfide and organic sulfides, for ammonia and amines, for nitrous oxide, sulfur dioxide, individual hydrocarbons, for soluble sulfate and N-nitrosodimethylamine, benzo-a-pyrene, and phenols were studied in detail. Ten analytical procedures were developed and codified. Interference studies and proof-tests in diesel engine exhaust were conducted with every procedure and the results of these experiments are reported in detail.
