The Editor‰??s Spotlight for the November / December 2017 issue of the Journal of Chemical Health and Safety is shining on:

A comparison study between passive and active workplace personal air monitoring techniques for airborne isopropyl alcohol concentrations
Austin K.Simons, Rodney G.Handy, Darrah K.Sleeth, Leon F.Pahler, and Matthew S.Thiese

The abridged abstract is:
This research project involved a comparison between the performance of active and passive sampling methods used to collect isopropyl alcohol vapor in an industrial setting. This field experiment was conducted in a real-world industry setting with workers exposed to isopropyl alcohol. Based on the strong correlation values and the trend of passive samplers reporting higher results than the active samplers, occupational health specialists could reliably use the passive samplers in this study to demonstrate compliance to isopropyl alcohol exposure limits.
