Polyurethane foam plugs, Chromosorb 102, and Tenax GC have all been found to be better sorbents than cottonseed oil for high volume collection of airborne chlorinated and organophosphate pesticides and polychlorinated biphenyls. None of these were satisfactory for the recovery of carbofuran or carbaryl. A new high volume collecting module concept capable of use with polyurethane foam, porous polymer beads, liquid coated glass beads, or other solids was developed. The entire collector is Soxhlet extracted and no disassembly is required. The collector-extractor is ready for reuse as soon as residential solvent is removed.
