This monograph will be included in a future ACGIH® Signature Publication that will be entitled: Air Sampling Technologies: Principles and Applications. We often think we know whether we need a particle sampler or a vapor sampler, but do we really? What do we need to know to sample a chemical with an IFV (Inhalable Fraction and Vapor) notation on its TLV®? This monograph gives some answers. It begins with an introduction to the physical processes that determine whether a chemical will be in the particle, vapor or both phases of an atmosphere. It goes on to provide “rules of thumb” for sampling decisions. Finally, it describes different sampling approaches and pitfalls. Be ready to answer the question “Are you sure you aren’t missing a lot of the airborne chemical sampling this way?”
