New Test Method for Measurement of Ethylene Oxide in Ambient Atmospheres

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.


ethylene oxide; ambient atmosphere; air analysis; ambient air/atmosphere analysis; cannister analysis; direct analysis; air monitoring; SIFT-MS


This standard will provide the first method for direct measurement of ethylene oxide in ambient atmospheres at trace (sub ppb) levels. The method will be used by any parties that are responsible for ensuring the ambient concentrations of ethylene oxide are at a safe level.

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