Abstract:

The objective of the project is to develop the methods, procedures, and equipment required to isolate individual submicron particles from an agglomerated matrix for analysis by various techniques. The particles of prime interest are those submicron particles found in the atmosphere as a result of industrial air pollution. The report presents a review of this area and contains over 1100 references. The topics reviewed include Basic concepts of submicron separation Atmospheric aerosols Properties, sources, nature of, size and shape Adhesion of atmospheric particles Forces, mechanism and methods of measuring adhesion and separation forces, indexes of dispersion Mathematical models of adhesion and agglomeration Methods of sampling, collecting and analyzing submicron particles in air, in liquid.
