Even so, the annual release of lead into the atmosphere in the US is 1300 tons. It is believed that releases of this order are sufficient to be harmful, especially to children. A calculation similar to those done previously for VOC and for carbon monoxide follows. 3 parts per billion or thereabouts. This is so and is an encouraging result of the change from leaded to unleaded petrol. There is scope for lowering this figure further by addressing lead paints. Lead from automobiles is further discussed in the next section.

A ‘NOx meter’ using chemiluminescence requires a cylinder of oxygen. Oxygen entering the device is converted to ozone which in turn converts NOx to nitrogen dioxide in an electronically excited state. Emission of a photon by this: NO2* ĺ NO2 + hQ Please click the advert is the basis of the measurement. m. 2 Superionic conductors These are solid materials of which NASICON (sodium superionic conductor) is an important example. Its formula is Na3Zr2Si2PO12. Such substances resemble ionic solutions in that movement of ions in them produce current and are therefore sometimes referred to as ‘solid electrolytes’.
