Abstract

A research program was initiated to evaluate the stability of selected organic compounds collected on porous polymer sor-bents during combustion source sampling. This type of study is necessary to determine if destruction and removal of hazardous materials waste has occurred during incineration and not as a result of the sampling and analytical approach used. Two compounds, hexachlorobenzene and toluene diisocyanate, were selected for study. Due to difficulties encountered in preliminary work, studies on toluene diisocyanate were discontinued. Hexachlorobenzene sorbed onto XAD-2 resin at the 1 μg level was exposed to the following conditions intended to simulate hazar dous waste incineration stack sampling: moist air, moist air in combination with HC1 (two concentrations), and warm air. Recoveries following exposure were determined for each of three trials. The results indicate that hexachlorobenzene sorbed onto XAD-2 is stable with respect to the conditions routinely encountered during incineration stack sampling.
