    Abstract

    Dipropyl sulfide is used as a leakage testing gas for either a carbon-containing permeable chemical protective suit or a permeation-resistant suit. It has the advantages of low toxicity, easiness of adsorption by activated carbon, relatively high vapor pressure, and commercial availability.

    A sensitive Chloramide-Ester-Congo Red (CEC) indicator paper (cloth) was developed that can detect 0.014 mg/dm3 of dipropyl sulfide vapor by color change within 2 min.

    Testing procedures are demonstrated that can evaluate the protective suit's airtightness.
