Acrylonitrile (AN) has been identified as a suspected carcinogen and may be regulated in the future as a hazardous air pollutant under Section 112 of the Clean Air Act. A method was validated that utilizes a midget impinger containing methanol for trapping AN vapors followed by a charcoal tube for detecting any AN lost from the impinger. The analysis was performed by capillary gas chromatography with a nitrogen selective detector. The accuracy of the method was determined to be 100 + or - 4.6% from 11 tests performed in the laboratory covering the range of 10.6 to 1038 ppm AN and 0 to 40% moisture. The overall precision was 3.3%. Field testing of the method was conducted at two different sites.
