New Test Method for Airborne Carbon Nanotube Concentration in Ambient and Indoor Atmospheres as Determined by Transmission Electron Microscopy Direct Transfer

1. Scope

The promotion of knowledge, the development of test methods, practices, guides, and terminology pertaining to sampling and analysis of atmospheres, interpretation of data, the standardization of recognized and practiced methods for measurement of atmospheric quality, and sponsoring of discussions among those active in the study of air quality.
The work of the Committee will be coordinated with other ASTM Committees and other organizations having mutual interest.

Keywords

air; ambient air; nanotubes; electron microscopy; indoor atmospheres; microscopy

Rationale

Currently, no standard method exists for the analysis of carbon nanotubes collected from membrane air filters. This test method will be used by those attempting to monitor for nanotubes in the air both occupationally and in the ambient environment.

The title and scope are in draft form and are under development within this ASTM Committee.
