Abstract : The patent is concerned with a process and device for detecting impurities in the atmosphere by an intensity-time rate technique whereby chemiluminescent reaction curves are developed and found to be representative of specific materials. Hence, by comparing known intensity-time rate curves with curves had by actual measurings, the invention enables the user to discern many more materials never before detected. (Author)
