A 3-year research project was initiated to develop a portable, miniature, sorbent-type collection system for sampling and preconcentrating organics in general, and carcinogens and associated compounds (e.g., mutagens, precarcinogens, and cofactors) in particular, from ambient air. The purpose of such a system is to assess the exposure of individuals and/or small groups of individuals to these types of compounds in various environments. Inherent in the ability to assess exposures is not only the sampling capability but also analytical confirmation. The determinative step in this project will be capillary gas chromatography/mass spectroscopy. Progress during the first year was discussed and concerned the selection of candidate sorbent materials; the selection of test compounds for sorbent evaluation; the evaluation of the sorbent materials in terms of capacity, desorption properties, and physical properties that relate to pressure drops and ultimate system design, and the selection of a three-sorbent system based on Tenax-GC, Porapak R, and Ambersorb.
