    ABSTRACT: The aerosol fraction of the oxidative thermal decomposition products (700 degrees C) of rigid polyurethane foam was collected on glass fiber filters and fractionated into either-soluble neutral, acidic, and basic fractions and water-soluble compounds. The fractions showed mutagenic activity in a bacterial fluctuation test with Salmonella typhimurium TA98 or Escherichia coli CM891 as the tester strains. All the fractions induced mutations in both strains after metabolic activation with rat liver S-9 mix. The basic and the water-soluble fractions were mutagenic for S. typhimurium TA 98 even without activation. Thin-layer chromatography showed the presence of several primary aromatic amines in the aerosol. Polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons were not detected by glass capillary gas chromatogaphy.

    ABSTRACT: In this study, two microextraction methods, viz. continuous-flow microextraction (CFME) and static liquid-phase microextraction (s-LPME), were optimized and compared for the determination of p-toluidine in water and Chlamydomonas reinhardtii samples. The calibration curve for p-toluidine was linear in the concentration range of 0.01-5 microg/mL, and the squared regression coefficients (r(2)) for the lines were up to 0.999 for both CFME and s-LPME treatments. Detection limits in CFME and s-LPME were 8.2 ng/mL and 4.9 ng/mL, based on a signal-to-noise (S/N) ratio of 3, respectively. The precision was tested, in five replicates, by analysis of a 100-ng/mL standard solution of p-toluidine and the relative standard deviations were 5.43 and 3.08% for CFME and s-LPME, respectively. The concentration factors were 5.5 and 14.4 for CFME and s-LPME, respectively. s-LPME has a higher extraction efficiency, lower detection limit, and higher concentration factor than that of CFME. Additionally, the s-LPME method is precise and reproducible, and requires only a 3.0-microL microdrop of extraction solvent. Therefore, this procedure is more convenient in use, and viable for qualitative and quantitative analysis of p-toluidine in water and biota samples.

    ABSTRACT: A rapid method based on reverse-phase high-pressure liquid chromatography (HPLC) is described for the separation and quantitation of N-(2-propyl)-N′-phenyl-p-phenylenediamine (IPPD) and N-(1,3-dimethylbutyl)-N′-phenyl-p-phenylenediamine (DBPD) in urine. Sample preparation is based on a simple extraction procedure and analysis is carried out on a chromatographic system using a LiChrosorb RP 18 column and buffered aqueous methanol as the mobile phase. The relationship between peak heights and amount injected was linear over a range of 0.05–5 μg for both compounds. Retention times and peak heights were highly reproducible. Detection was very sensitive, allowing quantitation of 5 ng of either compound. The application of the techniques for biomonitoring body fluids as an indicator of exposure to aromatic amines is discussed.
