Sample PreparationThe radiello 145 passive air sampler (RAD145) utilizes a stainless steel net cartridge packed with 350 mg of graphitized charcoal (Carbograph 4). Airborne volatile organic compounds (VOCs) were adsorbed to the charcoal and then thermally desorbed and analyzed by GC-MS.

Trap 1 conditions were used for radiello desorption. Trap 2 conditions were used for Unity desorption.
