Abstract:

The odor threshold of chlorine in oxygen was determined. Measurements were conducted in an altitude chamber, which provided an odor-free and noise-free background. Human male volunteers, with no previous olfactory acuity testing experience, served as panelists. Threshold values were affected by time intervals between trials and by age differences. The mean threshold value for 11 subjects was 0.08 ppm obtained by positive responses to the lowest detectable level of chlorine in oxygen, 50 of the time. Author
