Abstract : This report documents the literature review and development of a passive hydrogen chloride (HCl) monitor. The monitor was to be lightweight, low cost, portable, reusable, and to provide some degree of quantification. The necessary equations for describing the bulk diffusion of HCl in air are described, as are the theory and design of the tube dosimeter to measure HCl in ambient air modifications of this design to measure HCl in the 300 ppm-sec range are also presented. Keywords: Hydrogen chloride, Rocket engines, Hydrogen chloride, Passive monitors.
