Abstract

A simple sampling and analytical method for monitoring carbon disulfide (CS2) vapor was investigated to assess exposure to low levels of CS2 in a viscose rayon factory. CS2 vapor was adsorbed on polymer beads (poly (2,6- diphenyl-p-phenylene oxide)) packed in a diffusive sampling tube. The sampling tube was heated at 180°C for 7 min using a Daily Exposure Limit Test Apparatus, and thermally desorbed CS2 was measured by a stain tube for CS2. In laboratory experiments, the indicated CS2 levels measured by this method were highly correlated with calibrated CS2 concentrations (1-40 ppm), exposure duration (1-8 hr) and cumulative exposure levels. The CS2 values were stable up to 7 days after sampling when the diffusive tubes were stored at 4°C and 20°C. The effects of relative humidity, wind velocity and hydrogen sulfide on the measured values were negligible. In a field survey, 65 workers in a viscose rayon factory wore both the diffusive sampling tube and a commercially available 3M 3500 organic vapor monitor on their collar during their 8-hr work period. CS2 concentrations obtained by the two methods were comparable and the correlation coefficient was 0.931. This method proved to be useful in determining the concentrations of CS2 to which workers were exposed.
