Abstract
The major objectives of project W7714-2-9653 were to (I) Provide a field evaluation of airborne emissions of Triethylamine (TEA) and Diethylamine (DEA) from 4 types of amine modified granular charcoal in canisters, while attached to a gas mask and (ii) To conduct a detailed laboratory validation including critical appraisal of the sampling and analytical methods for TEA and DEA. The mask and canisters were tested on both a breather-equipped mannequin and on human volunteers. Two versions of the canisters were of dual bed configuration, C7(TEA-BPL/ASC3T) and C7(KOH-TEA-BPL/ASC3T), the remaining two types were single bed compositions. A description of each will be given later in the text.
