Analytical techniques and instrumentation, which had been developed during the previous contract years, were further evaluated for the collection and analysis of carcinogenic and mutagenic vapors occurring in ambient air. The areas of investigation included (a) the development of a permeation system for delivering precise quantities of organic vapors for calibrating instruments, (b) the development of procedures for the preparation of glass capillary columns for effecting the resolution of complex atmospheric vapor mixtures, (c) the characterization of organic vapor emissions from preset controlled fires, (d) the survey of ambient air samples taken at various sites around the continental U.S. for the detection of N-nitrosoamines, (e) the identification and quantification of N-nitrosodimethylamines in samples collected in Baltimore, MD and the Kanawha Valley, WV, and (f) the characterization of ambient air for hazardous and background pollutants from several geographical areas within the continental U.S.
