Mohd Saad, Mohd Fairul (2009) The study of outdoor air particulate matter concentration and composition at the front gate and rear gate of UITM Shah Alam, Malaysia / Mohd Fairul Mohd Saad. [Student Project] (Unpublished)

Abstract

study was conducted at the front gate and rear gate of Universiti Teknologi Mara
(UiTM) for outdoor air quality. The indicators of air pollutant monitored were lead (Pb),
copper (Cu), zinc (Zn), and calcium (Ca) in particulate matter (PM10). The instrument
used for this study was the Air Mini-Volume sampler and Inductively Couple Plasma
with Optical Emission Spectrometer (ICP-OES). The monitoring was conducted during
the semester on weekdays and on weekend. Result from this study show level of air
pollutants (PM10) at the front gate and rear gate was generally high. The highest value of
total particulate matter (PM10) measurement can reach almost 343.46µg/m³, exceeding
Malaysian Ambient Quality Guidance of 150µg/m3.
