Evaluation Of Chemical Protective Clothing by FT-IR/ATR Spectroscopy
An attenuated total reflectance permeation cell has been used to evaluate the permeation of polymer samples from chemical protective clothing (CPC), mainly gloves, by several chemical types including a solvent, a commercial pesticide mix, and a volatile solid. Good contact between sample and ATR crystal was ensured by the use of low gas pressure. The passage of the chemicals through the CPC sample could be readily followed by analysis of sets of FT-IR spectra measured during permeation experiments. Diffusion coefficients could only be estimated. The ATR method is compared with the traditional two-compartment cell used for evaluation of CPC, and its advantages and disadvantages discussed.
Impact and interest:
Citation counts are sourced monthly from and citation databases.
These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
Citations counts from theindexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
Full-text downloads displays the total number of times this work’s files (e.g., a PDF) have been downloaded from QUT ePrints as well as the number of downloads in the previous 365 days. The count includes downloads for all files if a work has more than one.
