This manual is an effort to assist in the development of uniform standard methods of analysis of air pollutants. It makes available the judgment and knowledge of a large group of chemists in the Public Health Service. Methods of determining pollutants of common interest are presented in uniform format by chemists on the staff of the Division of Air Pollution. The methods were critically reviewed by the Interbranch Chemical Advisory Committee, which is composed of representatives of the professional chemical groups in all branches of the Division. Methods presented are as follows: For determination of sulfur dioxide, the West and Gaeke and the hydrogen peroxide methods; for determination of nitrogen dioxide and nitric oxide, the Saltzman method; for determination of oxidants, the neutral buffered-potassium iodide and the alkaline potassium iodide methods; for determination of aliphatic aldehydes, the 3-methyl-2 benzothiazolone hydrazone hydrochloride method; for determination of acrolein, the 4-hexylresorcinol method; for determination of formaldehyde, the chromotropic acid method; for determination of sulfate in atmospheric suspended particulates, the turbidimetric barium sulfate method; and for determination of nitrate in atmospheric suspended particulates, the 2, 4 xylenol method.
