Abstract

The performance characteristics of commercially available sulfur dioxide monitors were determined.^Conductimetric, colorimetric, and coulometric analyzers were investigated.^The study was conducted to develop information on such instrument characteristics as stability, sensitivity, response time, collection efficiency, and response to interfering substances.^The methodology and apparatus used to determine each operational parameter are described.^The instrument performance data developed in this study should be useful to those involved in selection of instrumental methods for monitoring atmospheric sulfur dioxide.^12 references, 3 figures, 10 tables.
