1%) reported lifetime use of an additional volatile solvent
inhalant in an effort to get high.
Volatile solvent use (VSU), also referred to as glue sniffing, inhalant abuse, or solvent abuse, has been defined as "the deliberate inhalation of a gas or fumes given off from a substance at room temperature for its intoxicating effect" (National Drug Abuse Information Centre, 1988).
Volatile solvent users can be classified as either experimental, recreational, or habitual (Langa, 1993).
To our best knowledge, the study of more volatile solvent
such as THF as the cosolvent in the preparation of asymmetric PES membrane has not been widely reported.
Lifetime prevalence rates for the 15 most commonly used volatile solvents
are presented in Table 2.
Since then, much effort has been made to improve and extend the theory for non-Newtonian fluids (3-10), and paints which contain volatile solvents
The testing performed by Accu-Chem includes analyses of body fluids and tissues for recognized toxic chemicals including chlorinated pesticides, volatile solvents
, and polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs).
Most UV and EB coatings, inks and adhesives contain little or no volatile solvents
One of the most important features of this adsorbent is that it can remove low level volatile solvents
from vapor streams for recovery and reuse.
For a highly volatile solvent
such as chloroform, one expects to have very significant evaporation during the spin-off stage, which causes a rapid rise in solution viscosity, thus leading to [[t.
