The concentrations of ammonia, acetone, methanol, ethanol, propanol and hydrogen cyanide have been measured in the exhaled breath of 26 young adults of age 17/18 years, using selected ion flow tube mass spectrometry (SIFT-MS). Thus the concentration distributions have been constructed and are seen to be essentially log normal with median values in parts per billion (ppb), being ammonia, 317; acetone, 363; methanol, 238; ethanol, 104; propanol, 13; hydrogen cyanide (HCN), 8. There is a clear… CONTINUE READING
