ROOM-TEMPERATURE PHOSPHORIMETRY TO STUDY PETROLEUM PRODUCT PERMEATION THROUGH PROTECTIVE CLOTHING MATERIALS.
A simple analytical tool based on room-temperature phosphorimetry (RTP) is developed and used for evaluating the effectiveness of protective clothing materials against permeation of organic substances containing compounds such as the polycyclic aromatic compounds. A special permeation cell is designed, which allows direct RTP measurements of the permeated products after exposure, without requiring any sample extraction procedure. Results for a variety of petroleum product-protective material combinations illustrate the usefulness of the technique.
