Abstract

The body of information presented in this paper is directed to air pollution scientists concerned with the development and application of advanced methods for measuring particulate sulfur compounds in the atmosphere. It is demonstrated that low levels of particulate sulfur such as found in ambient situations can be continuously measured by flame photometry. The principal features of the approach are the selective removal of gaseous sulfur by diffusion tube scrubbing and enhancement of the flame photometer signal to noise ratio by electronic signal averaging. Moreover, the feasibility of using thermal programming to measure different sulfur compounds on an individual basis has also been shown. Further studies are underway to understand the different environmental factors which might affect both the sensitivity of the method and the ability to discriminate between different sulfur compounds.
